Six original members of the legendary British People Band are coming to exploratorium berlin and arouse their “anarchic energies and radical turbulence” with their “unfettered approach to improvising” (The Wire)!

The People Band is a musical collective, which started in the late 1960’s. Since then the People Band has been a legendary name in British improvised music, and its influence has been felt by many younger musicians. Its music is inclusive: Genre, style, audience and environment are all enveloped into the music making.  The music is often visceral and exciting. There are no ties to styles. Throughout the decades the personnel has been fluid, but consistently featured the members appearing in Berlin at exploratorium. All of the members have been involved within many genres of music making and bring their individual and collective experiences to a People Band performance. In 1988 People Band members appeared in Mike Figgis’ first feature film Stormy Monday as the Krakow Jazz Ensemble.
