Soul Rebels Brass Band
During this mornings listening session we heard several examples of innovative and relatively young brass bands. My favorite was the Soul Rebels Brass Band. One of the things that most impressed me by their work was the ease with which they could change character and style so efficiently. The incorporation of rapping creates a new style that has many possibilities. The rapping was energetic and passionate in the music we listened to this morning. I will go back and listen to the lyrics more closely but the energy and spirit with which they were spoken peaked my interest. This is a group I will be looking forward to learning a lot more about and hopefully hearing much more of the in the following years!
