In an indication of how far the thirteen young upstarts that comprise Orquestra Voadora have come in recent years, this weekend they shine their buckles in preparation for an appearance at the sleek Miranda on the Lagoa. Following celebrated countryfolk including Gal Costa and Ed Motta to the stage, the band that began as a typically light-hearted carioca Carnival outfit has become a certified hit, responsible, in a similar fashion to Monobloco, for updating and re-popularising classic Brazilian hits and giving them a modern twist, with a few international pop surprises thrown in for good measure.

Traditional marching songs remain at the heart of everything they play, however, the unmistakable thump of the trombone leading the troupe as they invariably go for a wander into the crowd, mixing things up, keeping the audience on their toes. How this will work in the slightly staid environs of Miranda is yet to be seen, but half the joy of the flying orchestra lies in not knowing quite what to expect next.
