cds torkest

Torkest plays a wide range of different music styles and creates a world on a stage. They go from the Netherlands to the Eastern bloc, further through Russia and travel to China afterwards. The journey goes around the world by visiting New Orleans and the mighty Rocky Mountains. Argentina is also not forgotten, and finally we set foot again in the Netherlands with a small detour in Africa.

In 1998 we recorded our first calbum called "Confidence". 10 years later, the repertoire had changed significantly, and there was a 2nd album made, 'Melodia del mondo ". Both cd's are recorded with The Javes and D'Accord (the two other accordion orchestras). A selection of this music can be heard, by using the menus Confidence and Melodia del mondo in the blue bar above.
