Links

Since they started their journey at the beginning of 2015 in Barcelona city, Balkan Paradise Orchestra has shown, performance by performance, their potential as an unusual and ground-breaking project. Made of eleven wind and percussion players, the BPO (also known with this name) has brought cheerful and fresh air to the fanfare panorama of our country. With different trainings, experiences and influences, but inevitably connected with the Balkan tradition of wind orchestras, these eleven women transform this musical genre to an authentic elixir of traditional western Europe melodies with rhythms of the entire world. They offer a show that works both on stage and on the street, with a surprising capacity of generating empathy towards the public and always bringing joy, party and desire of dancing in every corner of the world. "K’ATAKA is a recompilation of everything that defines us and has been part of us since this project was born. The popular roots, the different styles we’ve grown up with, and the discovery of new music and sonority, are dissolved in what this first disc is, a sincere and organic fusion of all that we want to share in every stage, square, street and corner where our music can arrive."
