Combining the sounds of African, Latin, American, Caribbean and Jazz, Dutch Caribbean Groove Orchestra (DCGO) is a platform for music lovers alike to come together, despite various levels of expertise, to have fun while spreading their message of love and unity. DCGO goes beyond being an ordinary orchestra and can more aptly be described as a melting pot of collaboration from various cultural backgrounds.
“Our message of course is to celebrate and live deeply while igniting, uniting and supporting people through music. Music is blind; music transcends barriers of gender, age and creed, and brings people together. Music in itself is a language that touches all people; and DCGO is a platform to touch peoples’ hearts all over the world while jamming out to some jazzy sounds. We are one big family!” ~ Michael Simon, leader of DCGO
