Matching elite musical calibre with goofball humour and exhilarating showmanship, Danish five-piece Basco are consummate all-round entertainers. With instrumentation including fiddles, mandolin, viola, cittern, accordion and trombone, together with vibrantly harmonised vocals, their intricately configured yet thrillingly daredevil material, most of it self-penned, splices Scandinavian, Celtic and North American folk influences with jazz and classical strands. “Richly textured arrangements and tremendous ensemble verve” (Scotsman)

Even after the undreamt-of exposure of featuring on Madonna’s MDNA world tour, Basque trio Kalakan’s creative watchwords - ‘simplicity, elegance and emotion’ – continue to underpin their uniquely captivating arrangements of traditional and original songs, arrayed with diverse percussion. “Truly spectacular” (Songlines)
