Grand Union Orchestra

the Grand Union Band: Trading Roots (World Music

Internationally celebrated world musicians and jazz soloists from the Grand Union Orchestra and local guest musicians bring a glittering programme to the Arts Centre, blending the wide range of musical styles they specialise in.

Sinuous Indian ragas intertwine with Latin-American salsa, Chinese melodies grow spine-tingling jazz harmonies, Bengali and Bollywood songs take on steel pans and reggae bass-lines, West African drumming goes head-to-head with bhangra – all combined with stunning improvisation in an extraordinary exchange of music from around the world.

Musicians appearing include sitar/tabla virtuoso Baluji Shrivastav, steel pan maestro Daniel Louis, Latin-American percussionist Carlos Fuentes, and two of the UK's leading jazz players Shanti Paul Jayasinha (trumpet, flugelhorn) and Louise Elliott (tenor saxophone, flute), led by Grand Union’s composer/director Tony Haynes (piano, trombone).
