Two super heavyweight enormous brass bands go head to head, mano a mano on the same stage to decide whether it’s Mexico or the Balkans that can blow up the biggest storm.

Whilst in the East father and son Boban and Marko Markovic  have become the gyspy brass kings of the Balkans, in the West, Gérman leader of the Lizarraga dynasty of Banda musicians from Northern Mexico has blown his way to ascendancy with the Estrellas de Sinaloa. London, as ever, is the place where these things are laid to rest. A World premiere title decider,  white-hot-brass-knuckle ride not to be missed with the audience the only guaranteed winner.
