Fantastic Brazilian Big Band 'NOMADE ORQUESTRA' appear at Ronnie Scott's for their club debut. Book early to avoid disappointment!
Nomade Orquestra came together in Sao Paolo in the year 2012, though they could just as easily have emerged fully formed into our world from a mystical land where spaced out jazz soundtracks daily life and the passing of time is rhythm and groove… such is their elusive, ethereal yet highly accomplished and deeply funky otherness.
Effortlessly weaving through the disparate sounds of Brazil’s diverse musical diaspora, the group describe themselves and their shared project as ‘the point where different musical expressions and strands meet and interact in a unique way.’ Drawing on funk and soul, Afrobeat, dub and hip hop, their sound is firmly anchored in the world of jazz while also incorporating electronic elements, and traditional Brazilian styles.
Their self-titled debut album, released earlier this year, is a highly sensory journey that recalls the mystical jazz musings of Herbie Hancock and Pharoah Sanders while sounding like the Brazilian take on Taoism. Making music like none other in Brazil, or indeed the world, Nomade Orquestra lead the way.
