Freedom Sounds Festival Cologne – Act 2: Pannonia Allstars Ska Orchestra

Pannonia Allstars Ska Orchestra

We’re really honoured to have this 11-man big band from Budapest play at the next Freedom Sounds festival – Pannonia Allstars Ska Orchestra. Their mix of traditional Ska, Dancehall beats, Jazz and Eastern European melodies is both, unique and very infectious, especially live.

In their home country they are superstars and regularly play the main stage at the massive Sziget festival. In 2012 they also grabbed the title “Album of the Year” at the annual poll run by REGGAE STEADY SKA. In 2013 their massive sound blew away audiences everywhere, from the London International Ska Fest to the Riverbank World Music Festival in Mainz.

Find an interview with the band’s singer KRSA here.

Or watch their bombastic version of the Game Of Thrones theme.

If you follow the instructions underneath the video, you can even download it for free.
