Where the village band meets the orchestra, La Banda Europa brings together 36 virtuoso musicians from 15 European countries playing ethnic/traditional instruments that belong to their home country. La Banda Europa is a potent symbol of how people from different backgrounds and cultures can come together in common purpose, united by music.

La Banda Europa comprises hurdy gurdies from France and Hungary, nyckelharpas from Sweden, Armenian duduks, Serbian brass instruments, Turkish drums, the bagpipes of six nations and much more.

"Solidarity in symphony with indigenous instruments and musicians from 15 countries across Europe-loved the musical composition"
Fiona Hyslop: Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Tourism and External Affairs

Highlights to date have included collaborations with The Vienna Boys' Choir and Lieux Publics as well as commissions from Newcastle Gateshead Initiative and the world renowned Celtic Connections.
