The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain – a real gem from the British Isles whose style and delivery perfectly reflect the idea of “different sounds” . This charming, humorous and daring band dates back to 1980s.
For over 30 years of activity, they contributed to changing the image of the ukulele. Their concerts are unique experiences; they alternate between touching and funny and at the same time they are masterfully performed. They performed thousands of excellent concerts in the most important concert halls around the world, such as the Royal Albert Hall in London, Opera House in Sydney and Carnegie Hall in New York, becoming a British cultural organisation and a national treasure. The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain consists of excellent, frequently classically trained musicians whose rich experience ranges from working with traditional ensembles, Glastonbury Festival and joint projects with such masters as Brian Eno or Michael Nyman. It translates directly into the band’s quality and inventiveness. Their versions of hit songs by, among others, Kate Bush, Talking Heads, Sex Pistols or Rolling Stones are both art and entertainment of the highest level.
A must go-to concert for anyone interested in music and looking for “different sounds”.
