Fra Fra Big Band is an 18-piece orchestra, an extended version of the renowned Afro-Caribbean ensemble Fra Fra Sound.
In a description given by trumpet legend Lester Bowie he states: "The swinging, sparkling bigband-jazz of Fra Fra Big Band is part of 'the great black music' tradition".

Originating from the Surinamese music scene in Amsterdam, the orchestra found an affinity with music from all over the world: American, European, Caribbean, West-African music and more.

A performance of Fra Fra Big Band is a party for their audience, with top soloists and original compositions.
