Rumba de Bodas

Celebrating their tenth anniversary, these Italian troubadours make it their mission to party. Their exciting music blends together latin grooves, Balkan, Swing, Ska and Reggae and has had people dancing under stages everywhere from Italy to London, and from Romania to Spain. This wonderful band had a great residency at last year’s Edinburgh Jazz Festival, and after seeing them there we just had to bring them to Ipswich.  See them on video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTsOhnv8qU8 (and go to https://www.ipswichjazzfestival.org.uk to find out more about this weekend mix of live music, film, art and musicians’ workshops )

The Baghdaddies

‘The best party music around’ Froots

The Baghdaddies’ exuberant and rampant brand of world music is an exhilarating cocktail of Balkan melodies, ska and latin grooves and sizzling brass played with furious energy and theatrical humour, making them as unforgettable on stage as they are when performing as wandering brass troubadours. They take themselves incredibly seriously so you don’t have to.

“If Jerry Dammers and Terry Hall had grown up listening to world music, The specials might have sounded very like the Baghdaddies.” — Uncut Magazine
