  • Gora Gora Orkestar brings the sounds of the world to the Rockies with high-energy performances. Formed in the fall of 2009, this ten-piece brass band is dedicated to making the audience dance with its infectious rhythm and own brand of feel-good music. The sound is an eclectic mix, blending Old World melodies of Eastern European Balkan folk and New Orleans second line with the backbeat of American funk and the sultry sway of South American tango.

    This happy caravan of musicians is comprised of seasoned veterans in the performance, education and composition of music. The band has released two EP recordings, "2015" and "€œInfinite Swag"€, with a follow-up record slated for release in 2016.

    Gora Gora Orkestar maintains a busy performance schedule that includes national and local music festivals along with headlining shows at a wide variety of venues. Community outreach,€” including visits to many public schools, fund-raising for local businesses, and social-justice movement support€” is also a big part of the Gora Gora Orkestar mission.
