From a deep water-port far to the west, Orrellis Nostralis has split across the skies to lutruwita in search of the right groove. They have cemented themselves as a pillar of nipaluna’s dance music scene, both as host of ‘Spin Class’ on Edge Radio, as well as from behind the decks at The Grand Poobah and Vibrance Festival. Their slick blends of jazz, funk and soul-affirming disco makes Orrellis Nostralis a must-see attraction.
