“Voodoo Love Orchestra are a force to be reckoned with, driven by irresistible rhythms and a powerful but nimble horn section.” – Simon Broughton, The Evening Standard

Following their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Amor ​Y Muerte’ released on in 2015, Voodoo Love Orchestra return with 10 brassed up panoramic tracks for their​ ​seco​nd studio album ​'​Inglorious Technicolor​'​.



Their debut album ‘Amor y Muerte’ was released on Movimientos Records in 2015. The album went to no. 1 in the World Music Network Charts, received rave reviews in The Sunday Times and Evening Standard, was included in Jamie Cullum's 'A to Z of Jazz' and was championed by editor of Songlines Simon Broughton, as well as receiving heavy rotation by BBC Radio DJs Craig Charles and Claire Teal.

​​'Inglorious Technicolor' includes interpretations of classic tracks that are filtered through the various lenses of funk, blues, big band swing, mambo, ska and cumbia. This latest release features versions of Queen of the Blues Koko Taylor’s 70s classic ‘Voodoo Woman’ and a barnstorming ’Frankenstein Ska’ made famous by Byron Lee & The Dragonaires, whilst ‘Ghost Town’ develops a distinctly Colombian skank. Subtly explosive and utterly infectious, this album will start your toes tapping; before you know it you’ll be drenched in sweat, lost in a dancing fever.

Hailed by Craig Charles as "double groovy", Voodoo Love Orchestra certainly know how to move a dancefloor. Formed in Brighton in 2012 they are born out of Latin American and New Orleans street music. The euphoric riot of musicians are made up of sousaphone, trombone, trumpet, baritone sax, tenor sax, alto sax, clarinet, vocals, military drumcorps and latin percussion and have blown away Love Supreme Festival, Secret Garden Party and the Soundcrash Funk and Soul Weekender, to name a few. Expect a mix up of Cumbia, Mambo, Afrobeat, Blues, N.O. Jazz, Ska and Highlife. With music inspired from ​​as far as Fela Kuti and as wide as Lucho Bermudez: this show is sure to make you groove.


“Double groovy!” – Craig Charles

“The party album of the year? Love it” – Clive Davis, The Sunday Times

* Gaita is a Colombian style of music that is part of the Cumbia family, which traditionally features bagpipes but was modernised in the 1940s to feature clarinet as the lead instrument, and was popularised by composers such as Lucho Bermudez.
