UMLAUT BIG BAND is an orchestra of fourteen musicians that, under the direction of Pierre-Antoine Badaroux, explores both the historical swing repertoire of big bands, based on recorded archives and manuscripts (1920-1940), and the sound possibilities offered by the big band format in a more contemporary form, by commissioning composers who are active in the fields of creation.
