Levitation Orchestra invites you to celebrate the release of their second album Illusions & Realities
Levitation Orchestra presents one of the most adventurous albums to bless our ears in 2021, bringing together multiple inspirations ranging across spiritual jazz, classical, electronica, soul, spoken word, M-Base, and no-holds-barred free improvisation. With trumpeter Axel Kaner-Lidstrom (Cykada, Gary Bartz) as musical director, the collective comprises some of London's most promising young musicians, who together play in or with the likes of Alabaster de Plume, Shunaji, Nihilism, PÆN, and Nardedey. Lluis Domenech Plana on flute, James Akers on tenor saxophone, and Ayodeji Ijishakin on tenor saxophone complete the horn section, with Saskia Horton on violin, Beatriz Rola on violin, and Emma Barnaby on cello making up the strings. Rhythm is available in handfuls from Hamish Nockles-Moore on double bass and Harry Ling on drums, complemented by Roella Oloro on keys, Maria Osuchowska on harp, and Paris Charles on guitar, with last but not least, Plumm and Dilara Aydin-Corbett on vocals.
Join the 11 piece ensemble for an all-night party to celebrate the album's release on Gearbox Records. Levitation Orchestra will play the entire 10 track album from start to finish for the first and only time since it's recording in 2019. Support comes from stunning vocalist and keys player Feeo. DJs from Social Record Society will be warming things up and keep us dancing between acts, then the brilliant DJ/producer Maxwell Owin will take us into the early hours with a two hour DJ set.
