Hypnotic Brass Ensemble

Posted on July 31, 2010

my last upload for July is something like a celebration: a post for my favorite street musicians and brass band ever- there used to be a beautiful post for Hypnotic Brass Ensemble in my mate’s blog once upon a time, but since it doesn’t exist anymore i feel i owe a tribute to this family of musicians, eight brothers, all sons of trumpeter Kelan Phi Cohran.

so, the story goes like this: last year Vassilis told me about Hypnotic, sharing this video below and i was instantly hypnotized. i have a thing with trumpets and brass in general.  browsing around, found out that the band from Chicago would  perform live in NY, the dates of my trip there. Magic.

booked tickets on line and saw one of the most joyful concerts ever (missed you Cloam, bastard). came back with all their cds. recorded some lousy videos as you’ll see below but you get the spirit. listening to them all day through today, while packing up for vacations.

please, pleaaaase, watch that guy above at 0.16 throwing a chair in the air. HYPE.

and one more:

we’ll be in touch

if you’re around thirty and lived your childhood in Greece, this post is for you: for years i ‘d been wondering about this cartoon i used to watch as a kid and two days ago i made a small net search (what were we doing before internet really?) and mystery solved: Les Mondes Engloutis or Shagma or in greek The secret of the brass was a magnificent french cartoon series, very mystical, with references to ancient myths of the earth and historical persons- i loved it and i dare say that all these years i remembered the opening song, by-hold your breath- Anna Vissi. Oh really. readmylips
