Beating Wing Orchestra is a Manchester based international music collective who seamlessly combine sweet Congolese melodic lines, spiritual Indian vocals and gritty Bangla hip-hop with the passion and soulfulness of Bosnian music.
They have performed twice at Manchester International Festival collaborating with Malian superstars Amadou and Mariam, Palestinian composer Reem Kelani and Indo-jazz clarinettist Arun Ghosh. They have also collaborated with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra creating a new theme tune for BBC Radio Manchester’s Introducing Show
Beating Wing Orchestra are one of the most creatively exciting bands in the North West today
