Marockin’ Brass represents all musical passions of MetX. One can hear in their music the result of a long-lasting love and a thorough analysis of (north)-African rhythms on which they layer their melodic lines that refer to jazz, contemporary music as well as to non-western musical vocabulary. The result is astonishingly fresh and sounds as if Brussels had always been a harbour at the Mediterranean sea. The answer lies undoubtedly in the great amount of respect that is used to intertwine both musical traditions. Hang in there for some steaming gnaoua or sweaty shaabi-funk accompanied by some redhot brass that will blow the sand out of your ears! Marockin’ Brass is a real treat for your brain and your feet, on a scene or in open air! Their music is the anthem of the new urban nomad.
After unusual but promising collaborations with Trevor Watts (UK) and Adama Dramé + Foliba (BF) the Belgian Philharmonic Orchestra, and the outstanding trumpeter Byron Wallen, the group now teams up with the talented producer Sofyann Ben Yousef (TU). The new album will be released in autumn 2018!
