“Addictive TV create the perfect integration of audio and visual technologies in their thrilling live show”

“As a massive sonic collage, that manages to simultaneously celebrate differences and commonality, then if anything deserves, for the size of what it attempts to encompass, the repurposed term ‘world music’, then Orchestra of Samples does”
