About the album
The Graham Ashton Brass Ensemble boldly explores new repertoire for brass from different cultures around the globe, with an incredible line up of composers and instrumentalists from different disciplines and musical spheres. A melting pot of Indian ragas, Japanese Gagaku, Argentinian tangos and ancient Celtic tradition, via American improvised and classical music, gives rise to a release of sparkling originality, where daring instrumentations are perfectly matched with sublime performances from this true ‘world’ ensemble.

Acclaimed as one of the world’s most innovative ensembles, GABE has given concert s throughout Europe, USA, Scandinavia & Australia.
