Boomshakalaka!

Formed in 2003, the Melbourne Ska Orchestra is an orchestra with a difference. Earning well deserved accolades at Bluesfest and WOMAD earlier this year, this ARIA award winning band is a force of energy to behold. Their recent song with The Wiggles (Fruit Salad) helped push the album to #1 on the ARIA charts. The bands debut self-titled release resulted in sell out national shows, multiple major festival appearances, three international tours and a host of awards and nominations. Melbourne Ska Orchestra’s live performance is explosive and infectious. Their unique take on the genre of Ska has wowed audiences all over the world. From Montreal to New York, Istanbul to London and with the approval of Reggae and Ska pioneers like Stranger Cole, Owen Gray, Carlos Malcolm, Ranking Roger and Neville Staples, to name a few, the Melbourne Ska Orchestra is resonating with audiences worldwide – young and old.
