It’s founder and leader, Colum Pettit (Cork, Ireland) has put together a multiethnic, multicoloured group which include styles and flavours from all over Europe. At the moment, ORKESTINA is a quartet made up of an Irish violinist, an accordinist and double bass from Catalunya and a bulgarian maestro of the Gadulka.
