About

Bio:
Blossoming from the Slavic heart of Greater Boston, the Somerville Symphony Orkestar is an all-original instrumental band that plays what they call “International Party Music.” Formed in 2009, the SSO combines elements of Balkan music with Rock, Reggae, and Funk music to create a high energy dance party. New and yet familiar is constant theme among concert goers as their music combines these elements in a fresh and exciting way, but provides beautiful and lyrical melodies. Described by WBUR as “Somerville’s Best Party Band” the SSO has consistently won over every room and brings everyone in for a great enjoyable show.

With the success of their first album, the SSO has opened for Moon Hooch, the Rebirth Brass Band, the Stepkids, and Dudu Tassa & the Kuwaitis. They’ve also performed at many of New England’s other festivals including Jerry Jam, Boston’s First Night, and the Somerville Artbeat Festival.
