It's been quite a while since Scottish group Orkestra del Sol's 2011 release, Lung Capacity. The album received rave reviews including a nod in Jazzwise and the 9 piece group bring smiles to peoples faces wherever they play. They have recently announced that they are going on the road again this year, starting with a gig at HiFi in Leeds on May 21st.

Described as honk-step, a brass band, street band, kletzmer...It's a sound hard to categorise, so have a look at the video or check out their website for more information.
