The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain returns to Ovations after their delightful 2014 debut. Pairing dry humor and irreverence with inventive interpretations of classics—ranging from Tchaikovsky to Nirvana via Otis Redding and Spaghetti Western soundtracks—the Orchestra takes us on “a world tour with only hand luggage.” There are no drums, pianos, backing tracks, banjos, pitch shifters or electronic trickery—only an astonishing revelation of the rich palette of orchestration created by ukuleles and the human voice. You may never think about music in the same way once you’ve been exposed to the Ukes’ wildly inventive twist on musicology.
Cleverly arranged and played with humor, energy and virtuosity.”
