The Brazz Brothers
They come from Langevåg in Sula, which faces the sea in the northwest country, in the centre of the world made up by the extreme edge of Norway. They embarked on their musical journey into the world from the Langevåg School Band, - the island has produced a vast number of musicians of strong identities. The Brazz Brothers have a thorough classical education as musicians, but they have decided to go their own way through a musical landscape which to them is boundless, wide open, rich and infinitely great. Through music they pursue the common language of humanity that lives in music. They reduce the distance between the cradle of jazz in New Orleans and the strong living traditions of folk music in Norway to a mere heartbeat. Through 30 years on the road world wide they have given about 3500 concerts in 36 countries. They have released 19 albums.
The Brazz Brothers consist of two groups of brothers on brass instruments – and an imported drummer. Jarle Foerde plays the trumpet and the flügelhorn. So does Jan Magne Foerde. Their brother Helge Foerde plays the trombone. Runar Tafjord plays the French horn. His brother Stein Erik Tafjord handles the tuba and Kenneth Ekornes is in command of the drums.
Electrifying, barrier-breaking musical diversions await us in the wake of the musical journey they embarked on - throughout all the oceans of the world.
