About Orkestra del Sol

“The swagger of a Balkan wedding band; the riotous energy of Latin carnival!”

Orkestra del Sol’s explosive reinvention of global brass music has captured imaginations, set pulses racing and left a trail of pummeled dance floors across continents. Their live shows are legendary, always infused with a roguish sense of theatre and a healthy dose of anarchic comedy.

Since their formation in 2004, the band has toured extensively, attracting ever-growing audiences and gaining critical acclaim – all the while staying true to their roots as a spontaneous and thoroughly entertaining street band. They have played all over the UK – as comfortable in arts centre, theatre or club as they are in a headline slot on a big festival stage.

Having announced that this is to be the last year of Orkestra del Sol, the band is now setting about making the rest of 2017 one mighty celebration! Join them for an evening of bombastic brass as they celebrate the release of their 4th album, Gross National Happiness.


The band will also be hosting a special one-off street band workshop as part of this year’s Top Fest and History Live celebrations at the Tolbooth.

If you play a wind or brass instrument, bring it along and we’ll build a honking brass section!

If you’d like to have a go at street band drumming, we can provide all the equipment required for you to join the drum section – no experience necessary.

You will even get the chance to perform with the band on stage at the evening event!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Orkestra del Sol are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
