Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! 🎄✨ This clip was taken from the “Connected” concert, an idea of the Argentinina DJ Hernan Cattaneo. It was performed at the Colon Theater in Buenos Aires in a show that united a symphonic orchestra of 70 musicians with electronic music. Our friend Leandro Fresco was the bridge connecting The Orb and Hernán. Enjoy!!
