The brilliant and somewhat enigmatic group OK Star Orchestra plays instrumental music that is hard to define. Music that comes sneaking up on you like a predator on the savannah. At a distance harmonic and restful but at a closer range full of force and bite.

The group members all have long backgrounds in a wide variety of styles. You could say there are obvious african elements in OK Star Orchestra´s music but just calling it »african music« misses the target. There are lots of other influences and the end result is a unique sound where simple melodies, groove and playfulness are key words.
