Carnival Collective – a blisteringly awesome band based in Brighton. Saw them at the weekend (where they launched their new album). Live drum and bass from a 30-piece, with some samba and soul thrown in. While this is a really old video, with some changes to singers for starters, it’s a fair representation of the sound and energy (except this time they were all squeezed onto the stage). The guy directing helps keep the folks entertained too. The crowd loved them. I’m guessing they’re a festival band rather than full-time, but if you get a chance, go and see them!
