The Viva La Sax Duo (see booking options)

The duo first met in 2008 when Viva La Sax booked Orli to be a special guest with her house band at the renowned Parrjazz night in Liverpool.

As Orli and Viva La Sax are both well-established musicians in their own rights together they form a female tour de force to be reckoned with.
