THE SOUL REBELS (US)

Friday 05.07.13 - 12:00 - Cosmopol

An average of 250 live performances a year has earned The Soul Rebels a description as a thoroughly well practised ensemble. Their musical origin is the horn music played at funeral marches in New Orleans and they play a mix between traditional music and soul, funk, jazz and hip-hop. These gentlemen separate from more traditional brass bands by often letting vocals accompany the glistening notes. The Soul Rebels stir the generic gumbo while syncopes sputter, flash and writhe through the sparkle of trombones and tubas. Backed by a socially conscious hip-hop attitude and a wealthy musical tradition this band is ready to give the world a party version of New Orleans.
