The most important thing about music is the way it makes you feel. Musicians are lucky enough to live a life of pure feeling if they can play their personal visionary music with as much integrity and energy as the spirit grants them. For the last 25 years, the trio called BROUN FELLINIS have been doing exactly this, innovating and disseminating their "Brounsoun", a sonic expression inspired by the ancient to future traditions of Jazz, Rock, Funk, Hardcore, Afrocentric Hip hop, Dub, film music and African/Indian trance sounds.
The Fellinis play this NOW music with passion, precision and soul in energetic performances that embrace freedom and structure equally. Out of nowhere, improvised themes and motifs morph into well crafted songs with evocative melodies, exotic harmonies and infectious rhythms. It is a music of the moment reflecting the lives of three exceptional musicians living and creating in the Bay Area, California.
