The music of Penguin Cafe Orchestra with an all-star line-up
Penguin Cafe was founded by Arthur Jeffes, bringing together a talented group of musicians from Suede, Gorillaz, and Razorlight, to perform his father Simon Jeffes’ legacy of world renowned Penguin Cafe Orchestra music, ten years after his untimely death in 1997.
Arthur, a talented composer in his own right, quickly began to create new and unique genre-defying music, with the spellbinding philosophy of the Penguin Cafe always in his mind.
Arthur utilizes many different instruments and influences including elements of African, Venezuelan, Brazilian, Bluegrass, Classical, Avant-Garde & Minimalist music, using a variety of instruments from strings, pianos, harmoniums, slide guitars, cuatros, kalimbas, experimental sound loops, mathematical notations and more.
To date, Arthur’s Penguin Cafe has released three acclaimed albums of fresh, innovative and beautiful music that have achieved the seemingly impossible feat of creating something new and different and still exciting the worldwide fan base of original PCO followers.
Support from Tony Roberts and Richard Llewelyn. Tony has played sax with John Dankworth, Danny Thompson, John McLaughlin, while Richard played with Arcadia Jazz Band working alongside Humphrey Lyttleton, George Melly, and Kenny Ball.
