Ping Machine

This Parisian collective doesn’t shy from experimentation: since forming in 2005, they’ve tried their hand at everything from film soundtracks to experimental jazz. Onstage the fifteen members deploy their panoply of instruments (we’re talking wind instruments, vibraphones, double basses - the whole package) to full effect. With all the refinement of a band that’s been playing together for years, they’ll rivet you with their fluid solos and deep grooves. Have a listen to their recent album ‘Live au Petit Faucheux’ to get an idea of their sound.
