Barry White was one of the most successful singer-songwriters of all time and his back catalogue continues to be adored across the globe.
The Love Unlimited Synth Orchestra pays homage to his extraordinary songs with a live show conducted by Charles Hazlewood and performed by Paraorchestra alongside special guests.
After making its debut at Glastonbury 2019 on the Park Stage with luminaries such as Nadine Shah, Larry Heard, YolanDa Brown, Clive Deamer (Radiohead) and Lianne La Havas, the Love Unlimited Synth Orchestra most recently brought down the house at the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre in June 2022.
Programmed as part of Grace Jones’ Meltdown, Paraorchestra were joined by a sensational cast of guests including Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke, Noisette’s Shingai, Rachel Chinouriri, Betty Boo, and Ibibio Sound Machine’s Eno Williams.
The remarkable mix of acoustic, analogue and digital instruments that make up this special orchestra are filtered, manipulated crushed and treated live – rendering the entire orchestra a giant synthesiser.
Arrangements by award-winning composer, Charlotte Harding, deliver a glorious new way of experiencing Barry White’s iconic tunes, including fresh accounts of some of his greatest work.

Just great sounds, incredible musicianship”
