Leeds big band Bassa Bassa, described as "merchants of musical mayhem", have been around since 1987. In that time over 80 musicians have passed through the ranks of the band's brass and sax frontline with full rhythm section.
Varying between 9 and 22 members (currently 14) the band has appeared at Glastonbury and WOMAD, made trips to France and Ireland, and featured in many festivals around the UK. They have also often brought their commitment to benefits and demonstrations for causes ranging from Drop the Debt back to the days of Anti-Apartheid, Nicaraguan Solidarity and the Poll Tax.
