Saturday Main Stage
The Full Attack Band is an incredibly exciting and energetic group of musicians fronted by sax player and vocalist Alejandro Toledo from Argentina.
Alejandro first came on our radar a few years ago at WOMAD when he was playing with his previous, award-winning band, “Alejandro Toledo and The Magic Tombolinos“. We are delighted to welcome his new collective to Backwell.
With support from Arts Council England, the band released their new album in “1001” at the end of last year. The album is a testament to Toledo’s new approaches for collaborating with musicians from around the world, including singers Fedzilla (Chile/Germany), Marco Quarantotto (Drums), Jack Haigh (Guitars), and Ofer (Bass). We are also hopeful that Rob Shispter will be on Electronics / Percussion. Rob’s world music knowledge is second to none and he plays some insanely creative mixes in his DJ sets at Shambala every year.
