Hailing from from Chicago’s South Side, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble is a group of seven brothers who come from an extraordinary musical family. The band freely mix the brass band tradition with generous doses of hip hop, soul and funk, creating an intoxicating and boisterous blend that is just barely contained on their newest release Fly: The Customs Prelude. They have toured throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and South America and played with everyone from Prince, Mos Def, Mick Jones (The Clash) and Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz).
They’ve performed at Coachella, WOMAD AU, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Sydney Opera House and Carnegie Hall. Their song, “War,” was featured in the blockbuster hit movie, Hunger Games.
