CACOPHANY ARKESTRA

Formed in 2013-14 the Arkestra has grown from strength to strength being awarded 3 ACE GFTA's , 1 ACE PG, an HLF grant for our participation in Peterloo 200 commemoration event in Manchester & many smaller grants to perform at Caribbean carnivals and other festivals. The group is flexible and can perform on stage, on foot, or on a truck...We have a wide range of PA  and costume options.
The group performs a mixture of Jazz tinged Soca, Morricone-isms and Afro-beat with or without self-penned lyrics.
