Worakls Orchestra

Kevin Rodrigues likes to communicate emotions without having to resort to words. The Parisian realised at an early age that he was proficient at the piano. Later on, he discovered the endless possibilities of electronic music. While making a name for himself as a DJ named Worakls, the thirty-something dreamed of a universe in which he could combine his musical passions: the energy of dance and the melancholy of classical music. The album ‘Orchestra’ (2019) is the pinnacle of his abilities, for now. It is a dance record written with a large orchestra in mind. That fantasy became reality, too, when he took twenty members of the Orchestre de Fourvière from Lyon on tour. His world changed immediately. “As a DJ I rarely saw people older than 40 in my audience. Now parents bring their children to my shows.”
