Firmly established as The World’s Most Precious Band, Tacachale Chamber Orchestra endeavors to make great music by synthesizing the best musical elements from across the ages. The band’s debut release, 2015’s Ocean Floor Funeral, fuses 1960s baroque/chamber pop compositions (a la The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Zombies, Os Mutantes); country/bluegrass instrumentation, like banjo, mandolin, and acoustic bass (Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs); and luscious synthesizers (a la Depeche Mode, Yellow Magic Orchestra) to create a new and diverse sound.
Tacachale Chamber Orchestra are in the process of releasing a series of singles across 2016.
Future releases will incorporate hard rock, hip-hop, and whatever else seems interesting at the time. Tacachale’s influences include the aforementioned artists, in addition to J.S. Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, George Frideric Handel, Joseph Haydn, Jean-Baptiste Lully, Beastie Boys, Cypress Hill, Prince Paul, El-P, MF Doom, Ennio Morricone, Rasputina, Bad Brains, Faith No More, Black Sabbath, Bob Marley, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Stevie Wonder, Sly and the Family Stone, Prince, Jorge Ben, Os Mutantes, Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, Pop Will Eat Itself, Aphex Twin, Hank Williams, and just gobs and gobs of stuff. Vast enjoyment is also derived from music traditions of Mexico, the Andes, Ireland, China, and Mongolia.
