The Cacophonia Beach Ensemble

Be not afeard. The isle is full of noises,
Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometimes voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep
Will make me sleep again; and then in dreaming
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me, that when I waked
I cried to dream again.
This will prove a brave kingdom to me, where I shall have my music for nothing.

Shakespeare, The Tempest Act 3 Scene 2

A thousand Twangling instruments

Mozart must surely turn in his grave when he hears what the Cacophonia Caribbean Beach Orchestra have made of one of his most celebrated pieces: Eine Kleine Nachtmusiek - karaoke style.

The Cacophonia Caribbean Beach Orchestra take a "dip" into popular culture with their rendition of Barbie Girl and give it their sublime best.

The Beach Belles play Bach on Bells & other exotic chromatic percussion instruments.

The Orchestra has recently added to its repertoire with its own rendition of Widor's Toccata, played here on marimba, shakuhachi and steel pans.
