Bio

Bruno Vansina was inspired by the famous exotica of Martin Denny and Les Baxter for a children’s play.

 

His compositions, rearranged by colleague Pierre Vervloesem, remained true to the originals, but have a very contemporary feel to them as well, and soon started to lead a life on their own.

 

This resulted in a new band – the 7-piece Orchestra Exotica – that performs the playful and multicolored music of Denny and Baxter with a healthy dose of humor, cunning craft and an infectious drive. Abstract and cartoonish videos form the ideal icing on the cake.
