FANFARA STATION (Italy / Tunisia / Canada)
from Italy, Tunisia and Canada
The transnational formation Fanfara Station from Florence, Italy, combines elements of Balkan brass and jazz with North African rhythms and pulsating electro-dance beats. Singer and composer Marzouk Mejri finds inspiration for the music in memories of his father’s Tunisian brass band. Canadian-born trumpeter and trombonist Charles Ferris provides brilliant improvisations at the loop station, while master programmer Ghiaccioli e Branzini heats up the crowd on the dance floor. Fanfara Station’s music pays tribute to the achievements of Mediterranean migrants, the musical cultures of the African diaspora, and the ancient connections of Southern Europe to the Middle East, the Maghreb, and the Americas.
