Don't be fooled by the name, this is no ordinary brass band.
As part of the festival's Other Voices series celebrating Irish and international artists, the eight piece Booka Brass Band took to the stage this afternoon.
Casual observers expecting a more orthodox brass band were surprised, but by no means disappointed by the New Orleans-style.
The group stormed through an hour-long set on the intimate stage with an incredible energy felt even at the very back of the room.
They performed a number of their own songs, but delighted the crowd with their unique take on hits including Destiny's Child's Survivor and Justin Timberlake's Cry Me a River.

A thumping, raucous performance, which gave you no option but to leave with a smile on your face, the Booka Brass Band must be seen to be believed.
