Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

Description: Hypnotic Brass Ensemble consists of seven brothers from the South Side of Chicago who come from an extraordinary musical family. The band freely mixes 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 internationally, playing 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. The documentary film Brothers Hypnotic explores their music, work ethic, life and experience of being raised by their jazz-legend father, Phil Cohran. After screening in major cities and festivals, it aired on PBS. Their song War was featured in the blockbuster hit movie Hunger Games. Tickets are $11-$25.
