The Orchestra Italiana Bruxelles (OIB) is the Italian Jazz Big Band of Brussels founded in 2013 from the idea of Maestro Angelo Gregorio. The heart and core of OIBs repertoire is the passion of the Maestro for this historical moment of the Italian Music that he calls the Golden Era. This period goes from 1930 until 1970 and represents one of the most productive moments for Il Bel Paese in terms of songs and beautiful melodies that will become well known all over the world. Its about songs such as Nel blu dipinto di blu, Parole Parole, Buonasera Signorina, Estate, Voglio Vivere Cosi and many others.
Another significant aspect that makes their repertoire very interesting and in tune with the times is the fact that the Orchestra is composed not only of Italians but also of musicians of other nationalities such as French, Belgian, Portuguese, Cuban and Uruguayan. This multicultural environment enriches the entire OIBs repertoire by introducing a new key that is poured into the solos of every single musician and again in the whole orchestra that through the music and the cultural differences of its performers succeeds in creating the union in diversity.
