ABOUT MAYRA ORCHESTRA
Mayra Orchestra is a new cinematic pop orchestra led by singer/songwriter Maartje Dekker from Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
Fusing diverse musical genres such as classical, pop, world music and theatre, Mayra Orchestra takes the listener on a colorful journey full of imagination. An eclectic mix of theatre, rock instruments, classical strings, brass and polyphonic singing forms a dynamic and atmospheric show. Sometimes small and delicate, sometimes grande and epic, Mayra Orchestra takes you to a dreamworld where nothing is what it seems. After a successful crowdfunding campaign their ambitious first album World Of Wonder was released in december 2013. Mixed by Christiaan Bruin and mastered by Grammy Award winner Darcy Proper. A deluxe 24-page illustrated book containing the CD, live DVD of the show and a handmade pop-up (made by the band). December 2016 the band signed with the Dutch record label Butler Records, announcing the release of their second album ‘Oracle’ on March 31. Welcome to the wondrous world of Mayra Orchestra.
