Orlando Fitzgerald aka Orquesta is currently in his last days of participating in the Red Bull Music Academy (read my piece on NYC’s edition) which wraps up this weekend for another year. Fitzgerald has been lucky enough to sit in on talks with Philip Glass, Giorgio Moroder and more as well as collaborate with other participants.
Before we hear the results of that experience in his music, Orquesta’s new ultra-short eight-minute four-track EP Bray highlights the tropical Latin style he has explored thus far. He told RBMA “Bray is the name of the town that I was living in when I recorded [the EP]. It’s just south of Dublin. The title song is composed of different elements that are representative of the town for me.” Download it in full.
