The hallmarks of great jazz are the same today as a century ago, when it emerged from America’s Deep South in New Orleans. Uniting musicians of all races, styles and instruments, jazz remains the freshest, most spontaneous and original of musical forms, enjoyed by millions around the world. Likewise, Grand Union Orchestra, from its base in the heart of East London, thrills audiences with the virtuoso talents of professional first-generation migrant musicians, creating a truly pioneering world jazz sound.

"These guys know that what brings people together is something shared.. the Grand Union Orchestra’s music makes you feel alive, makes you think and makes you long for a better world" On the Edge World Jazz Festival review
