Bio

Ever since they met on the scenes of the Belgian Afrobeat Association and Wawadadakwa, Babs Jobo (talking drum) and Stefaan Blancke (trombone) were hatching a plot to start up a project that would create an energetic clash between percussion and brass. The ultimate recipe for this steaming melting pot: compositions of both musicians carrying the traces of their musical paths. When MET-X Moving Music provided a solid foundation for production, the duo set up a massive band. BRASSAFRIK was born and keen to be heard. This project represents the musical exchange between Africa and the rest of the world. In their new album ‘BRASSAFRIK’ the musicians turn the African rhythms into poly-layered patterns with an exceptional groove. The surprising timing of the extrovert horn section refers to traditional African question-and-answer designs as well as to pounding afrobeat, highlife and European brass tunes. West African rhythms flow seamlessly together with the tight pulses of the brass riffs that set alight this impressive crowd. Armed with copper, leather and wood, BRASSAFRIK organically progresses while hitting the scenes of many festivals and street celebrations. When on top of that the band adds a solid pinch of African dance to the whole on the pretext of ‘Move your ass and the rest will follow’, there is just no escape to this whirling party! BRASSAFRIK is a MET-X production. MET-X Moving Music.
