Penguin Cafe Orchestra

An accidental discovery of awesomeness…
Penguin Café Orchestra - Music for a Found Harmonium

The Anteaters are members of the original Penguin Cafe Orchestra. Left to right: Annie Whitehead, Steve Fletcher, Geoffrey Richardson, Liam Genockey and Jennifer Maidman. Unplugged at Cafe Ole' in 2009.

Thanks to SisterGoodBass for the upload.

And now I’m slightly obsessed with finding more…

Still Life at the Penguin Cafe is the name of a ballet choreographed by David Bintley and featuring music composed by Simon Jeffes, founder of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra. It is also the title of the accompanying album.

The ballet's debut production in 1988 was performed by The Royal Ballet at Covent Garden, in England. The opening voice over is by Jeremy Irons.
