The All Around This World Global Orchestra is an engaging, high-energy international band that brings AATW’s music to life in concert. The band features All Around This World’s Jay Sand on vocals and a rotating cast of global musicians, each of whom brings his or her own ample personality and accomplished musicianship to the group, such as band leader and Afro-Cuban percussionist, Arturo Stable and multilingual vocalist Christelle Durandy. The full 11 piece band performs songs from several continents, in several languages, and is available for concert bookings. A smaller, 5-piece group is available for both concerts and hands-on educational workshops that introduce young children and their families to global music and cultures through hands-on rhythmic and melodic explorations. For booking information contact Emily Bate: ebatester (..at..) gmail.com.
