“A powerhouse. Talent, instinct and creativity make them a real force to be reckoned with” (Sound on Sound)

Dakhla Brass weave glittering brass threads into intricate musical tapestries like no other band. Propelled by restless percussion, theirs is 'not exactly' music - not exactly jazz, not exactly brass band or Arabian or Second Line Mardi Gras... yet it draws on all that and more. This is demon stuff, delivered with deadly accuracy by five exceptional musicians, and it's in a class of it's own. 

"Very modern, great grooves, sound of Jazz coming from the UK that makes it stand out from everywhere else" - (Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2)

"Really punchy, very powerful energetic sound. Dakhla are an important part of the wave of modern groups that draw on the brass band tradition in some way." (Kevin Legendre - Jazz wise)
