Join us for a powerful Latin/Balkan fusion street-band extravaganza from La Tromba, who have come all the way from Chile to spread their electric enthusiasm for street-band shenanigans to the world. + free pre-gig workshop for horn players!
Over a period of 12 years and 2 album releases the chilean band La Tromba has moved through different rhythms and expressions of street music. In its own fusion Latin Balkan Music the band has summarized the local carnival music with balkan inspired drums and gypsy melodies. After 9 years performing locally on stage and street festivals in 2019 the band completed a 2 month European tour visiting Spain, France and Scotland with a great response from the new audiences, bringing a whole new experience that is present in its second album "Primavera Macabra" recorded during pandemic times.
"La Tromba are firm favourites of Glasgow’s 2019 Encontro Street Band Festival – they worked hard in the streets, rocked their stage show at the 700cc Fruitmarket, and continued to play into the small hours at the after-party. These guys are unstoppable! They are also modest and humble people who care deeply about their art."
Marcus Britton, Oi Musica
From 5- 6.30pm La Tromba will run a music workshop for horn players. To get involved please email email@example.com to reserve your place.
