Subject: Equator Festival - Gypsy Jaipur Maharaja Brass Band - June 1st and 2nd




Jaipur Maharaja Brass Band


One of India's finest and most exciting brass bands will be playing two dates in Kent for the Equator Festival

The Jaipur Maharaja Brass Band will be performing on Friday 1st June at the Ashford Youth Theatre and on Saturday 2nd June at the Brook Theatre in Chatham.
Originating from Jaipur, the city of the maharajas, the Jaipur Maharaja Brass Band play a range of traditional brass instruments including trumpets, trombones, tubas, clarinets and saxophones. Their music blends Indian melodies, driving brass rhythms and traditional Rajasthani folk music with popular themes from Bollywood, jazz, funk, pop, reggae?and even a touch of Hindustani classical music!
A gypsy dancer, famous all over India for her ?cobra dance', and a fire-eating fakir, who juggles with knives and walks barefoot on nails and broken glass add to the spectacle; and the result of this vibrant synthesis of colour, sound and movement never fails to captivate audiences all over the world. A dazzling display not to be missed!
Jaipur Maharaja Brass Band recently performed in Jaipur - India for former President Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam and in France for the election of the new French President Fran?ois Hollande.
