Unapologetically complex and joyful, The Destroyers have been colliding world musics for nearly twenty years. Their behemothic sound is a chaotic cacophony of klezmer, Balkan and British folk. With twelve truly exceptional musicians from Birmingham their explosive and virtuosic live show needs to be seen to be believed. Faustian fiddles, whirlwinds of woodwinds, braying brass, raucousness from the rhythm section, and salvos from the sousaphone destroy inhibitions and leave audiences bewildered, transported, beguiled, and wild. These tenacious, travelling troubadours liberate ears, hearts, and minds wherever they go.
