BARRAGE 8 performances offer a diverse fusion of cultures, musical genres and incredible performance vitality. The ensemble features all the instruments in the modern string family.

The music of BARRAGE 8 continues to evolve – combining contemporary world music influences, layered vocal arrangements and pulsating modern beats and rhythms. The young hip cast delivers the show with amazing energy and musical virtuosity that will leave the audience breathless.
