Get on with the Branch

Looking for a good old hoe down with your knees up?



We play lots of up-country Brazilian forró dance numbers and agricultural ballads, with a healthy dose of samba, cajun, murga and even some Scottish ceilidh dances if you ask nicely.


We’re fiddles, accordións, vocals, and percussion: zabumba, pandeiro and not forgetting the guy on triangle. You keep dancing and we’ll keep playing!

“…. well I’ll be damned if I didn’t see the whole tent nearly fall apart from people shaking their butts”

Get after ‘em, right away.  This is the Bristol Branch of Orkestra del Sol.
