IG Blech from Berlin has a long history as a street orchestra, claiming they are present where the action is. For more than thirty years, brass instruments and percussion play at demonstrations, streetfests and in memorable places. Because of their special combinations of all music styles, it is hard to fix them to a specific label. Their so-called HeavyMessingWorldMusic is a mix of swinging Brazilian samba, stamping African grooves, sun cracking calypso, pumping funky beats, lively-melancholic klezmer, spirited Macedonic Čoček, uptempo Napolitan tarantellas and rebellious Algerian raï.
In 2015, IG Blech hosted T&B in Berlin. In september they are present at our own party, T&B Jubilee.
