Authentic Light Orchestra was founded in 2009 by Valeri Tolstov, a Swiss multi-instrumentalist with Armenian roots, with an idea to combine different musical genres such as jazz, rock, elements of Armenian folk, modern classics and live electronic. With no special emphasis, all of the genres harmonically supplement each other producing a unique sound and original interpretation of Armenian folk. The band aims to create a fresh view on folklore music, finding new musical language and new distinctive sound of Authentic Light Orchestra.
Musicians comprising A.L.O. have performed in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Tonhalle Zurich and at music festivals such as North Sea Jazz, Jazz Baltica, Montreal Jazz Festival. Since 2012 the band has performed about 200 concerts in 45 cities.
