Information:

Dakhla Brass have embarked on a magic exploration of the richness of brass music as celebrated around the world. Propelled by restless percussion, theirs is ‘not exactly’ music – not exactly jazz, not exactly hip-hop, not exactly brass band or Arabian or second-line Mardi Gras … Yet it draws on all of that and more, pumping with the excited surge of a carnival crowd while catching the careful craft of a colliery band and the artful freedom of New Orleans jazz. It taps your toes, swivels your hips and strokes your chin all at the same time.

Armed with just a trumpet, two saxophones, a trombone and a drum kit, they have released three albums of original music in under three years, carefully honing an identity with intricately written musical tapestries woven from glittering brass threads. The sheer quality of their music has caught the ears of BBC Radio 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 while their live performances have included sharing prestigious stages with top international contemporary outfits, including the Youngblood, Hypnotic and Hot 8 Brass Bands.
