Flairck / Basily - Global Orchestra CD + DVD

SKU FlaircK28052011
"Flairck, established in the late seventies, has always been a group with an unpredictable style of instrumental and acoustic music. The group has cooperated with a vast number of great musicians and has played over 2500 concerts worldwide.

In the eighties Flairck frontman Erik Visser met the talented young musicians of the Basily gipsy family in their hometown Delft, Holland. He produced the Basily debut album 'Antara' (1 990) and the second album 'La Bikina' (1993).

Over the years Basily developed a new style of jazz mixed with original and traditional gipsy influences. The group is now known internationally and performs at big jazz festivals all over Europe, in Asia and the US. They even played at a private Rolling Stones party.

In 2008 violinist Tucsi Basily and Erik Visser initiated a collaboration between gipsy musicians and a variety of instrumentalists from different countries and backgrounds. In the summer of 2009 this World-Music-orchestra gave its first performances at the International Gipsy Festival and the well known Boulevard Festival.

The enthusiastic responses to the instrumental acrobatics of this large band created a follow up. The first Global Orchestra tour took place in the spring of 2010. The last concert of this tour was filmed and is featured entirely on this first Global Orchestra DVD.

Global Orchestra is a pact between the musicians of Flairck and Basily, in collaboration with Indonesian jazz violinist Luluk Purwanto, Hungarian percussionist Antal Steixner and Rumanian cimbalon player Marius Preda.

Together they form the flexible ranks of this orchestra, which is meant to be a forum for musicians from different background aiming towards a "new approach to old traditions"."
