Black Market Brass / Bio

Black Market Brass is a Minneapolis-based group performing originals inspired by West African afrobeat/afrofunk, as well as authentic renditions of the classic 1970's tunes from greats like Fela Kuti, Ebo Taylor, Tony Allen, and K Frimpong.
Taking their cues from the godfathers, this 11 piece instrumental draws on complex polyrhythmic percussion, driving bass lines, dizzying guitar interplay, commanding brass lines to woo their audience to the dance floor. Stylistically Black Market Brass draws from a wide range of traditions, including free jazz, rock, indie pop, highlife, afro-cuban, to infuse their music with a bit of that Minneapolis soul.
