Grand Union Bangla Band
The Grand Union Orchestra brings together professional musicians from all over the world, and is especially well-known for its collaborations with South Asian artists – most of them based in Britain, some of them guests from abroad. What we offer Asian audiences is a band which combines the familiar – Indian classical music, Bangladeshi folk song, qawwali, bhangra and Bollywood – with the unusual – African and LatinAmerican rhythms, jazz and European harmony. They love it! and over the last few years, the Grand Union Bangla Band has been a highlight of many Mela programmes across the whole UK.
