Following their critically acclaimed debut album – heralded by The Sunday Times as “The party album of the year” – the Brighton carnival alchemists have been traversing studios across the land, brewing up another elixir of tropical tracks bursting with Ska, Cumbia and Mambo flavours all INGLORIOUS TECHNICOLOR!
Interpretations of classic tracks are filtered through a lense of funk, big band swing, Jamaican ska and Colombian cumbia. Quietly explosive and utterly infectious, this album will start your toes tapping; before you know it you you’ll be drenched in sweat, lost in a dancing fever.
First summoned by the Voodoo High Priestess Cicely Taylor in 2012, this orchestra of the undead were conjured up to get audiences across the land dancing to an explosion of brass and percussion. Imbued with the spirit of 1960s Latin America with a heavy dose of the Louisiana swamps, Voodoo Love Orchestra soaks in sounds from around the world Colombian Cumbia, Cuban Comparsa, New Orleans Jazz, Mississippi Blues, Nigerian Afrobeat, Jamaican Ska and Ghanaian Highlife.
