The Orchestra of Samples


This acclaimed live performance is a unique musical journey via Senegal, Kazakhstan, China, Colombia, India and more: connecting cultures and bringing musicians and instruments together, from traditional and rare to the newly invented.

With live guests, including fretless guitar virtuoso Alejandro de Valera, percussionist Michael 'Fordey' Ford and Czech clarinettist František Holčík.

For ten years, Addictive TV filmed improvised sessions with musicians then ingeniously spliced them to create new, extraordinary, fusion music.

Orchestra of Samples is described as “ingenious and compelling” by The Times and “a glimpse into the very essence of music” by Cultured Vultures.

What the public say

Wow! Great to see this is coming to Ipswich, I saw this show at Womad Festival a few years ago and thought it was just awesome, such a unique idea! Combining video with live musicians, it really took me around the world!
