This nine piece mini orchestra bring the infectious rhythms of the Caribbean to an exuberant and energetic live performance fusing ska, reggae and jazz. Taking inspiration from the highly acclaimed Jazz Jamaica, Jazz Babylon marry reggae riffs to classic and contemporary jazz with a full rhythm section, saxophones, flute, trumpet/flugelhorn and trombone – and a female vocalist. Formed in 2007, the band is part of the Swing Unlimited Big Band stable based in Bournemouth – a firm festival favourite from last year. They bring good-time vibes from the lively brass section and the rock steady rhythms of drum and bass – remind yourself you’re still in Lyme Regis!
