Poets of the street, dancers of the soul, the JUNO-nominated Gypsy Kumbia Orchestra combine Afro-Colombian percussion with a full Balkan-style brass section, traditional Roma-style fiddle and a dance troupe to unleash the perfect “creative chaos” for a TD Sunfest party. Touring the globe from their base in Montreal, the GKO entertains in French, Spanish and, occasionally, English.  The upshot: “We dance, and we will make your body and your mind dance in overwhelmingly beautiful ways,” promises the band.  Formed just three years ago, the 16-piece GKO has already racked up over 140 performance dates, including festivals across Ontario, Québec, Eastern Canada, Colombia and parts of France. In addition to their constantly evolving musical dance show, this hardworking collective has developed three distinct stage performances: Makondo: the Gypsies arrive; Melkiades: the Power-Fool; and a children’s show, No King in the Jungle.
