Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

Director: Samuel Thiebaut
Genre: Live Show


“Eight brass instruments and a drum kit, that’s what the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble has been lifting its audience with for nearly 10 years. Eight brothers from Chicago, sons of Sun Ra trumpeter Phil Cochran, who revisit the very concept of brass band, between jazz, hip hop, funk, soul and afro-beat, and perpetuate the tradition of the New Orleans brass band. 
 The soul of black music is heard in this festive, yet committed music, its warmth and depth. We celebrate “Marcus Garvey”, but also the simple “black boy”, but without any sadness: it is languorous and happy, powerful and comforting. Hypnotic Brass Ensemble live is first of all an experience, dense, intense, unique. Each musician is a virtuoso and works with lightness to the success of the ensemble. Between two albums, the members of Hypnotic Brass Ensemble have worked with Mos Def, Erykah Badu or the legend Tony Allen, and are admired by Gilles Peterson. Their raw material has not been polished, and their music sounds as spontaneous and sharp as ever. Life is a party, and today we’re invited.”
