Desmadre Orkesta

South American Power Brass

Event with headphones
The Seebühne at the Schwanenspiegel floats on the water while the audience sits on the terraces on the shore. In order to connect the audience with what is happening on stage, a headphone system is used that is sanitised before each use.


Wherever Desmadre Orkesta performs, the party gets started! The band from Buenos Aires plays folk melodies and classics, in surprisingly new and virtuoso arrangements. Three brass players, an accordionist and a rhythm section take the audience on a musical journey from Balkan brass to Colombian cumbias and swing from New Orleans to Argentinian milongas. The fact that the ensemble was formed by musicians from a theatre production nine years ago is still apparent today: With Desmadre Orkesta, the performance is at least as important as the music. The band members are constantly in motion, dance, interact with the audience and are bursting with energy and good humour. No wonder they enjoy performing as a marching band on the street as much as on big stages. Every concert is a joyous, intense and dynamic performance that is guaranteed to delight the audience.

The Argentinian band has already completed several tours in Europe and India. Their album ‘Vendaval’ was nominated in the category ‘Best Album of the Year 2019’ at the UK Latin America Awards.
