The Bernard Orchestar balkan brass band stays out of time by doing push-ups and pull-ups every morning. The Bernard champions are indeed outstanding athletes that have traveled on foot across Eastern Europe, all the way to the gates of the Oriental World.

After two selfproduced EPs, these joggers of a new era are coming back with a new athletic and festive set, boosted up with electronic sounds. The album title reminisces of James Bond movies and carries without contradiction the subtle personality of Bernard Orchestar’s music: ambitious yet not arrogant, amusing without being ridiculous, a type of kitsch that bears conviction, and quality too.
With their new release ‘Le Futur du Passé’, the Balkan band revisits the Balkan genre in a free and modern way, pushing their limits further, breaking up their own inhibitions and inviting you to travel to other territories.
You shouldn’t worry about the brass substance in this new record, it is still there, roaring more than ever, but they added a romantic oriental pop hint to the whole, which makes it thoroughly contemporary: music from tomorrow’s yesterday, to discover today!
