“Prepare to be put under their amazing musical spell.” San Francisco Weekly

The most important thing about music is the way it makes you feel. Musicians are lucky enough to live a life of pure feeling if they can play their personal visionary music with as much integrity and energy as the spirit grants them. For the last 25 years, the trio called BROUN FELLINIS have been doing exactly this. They innovate and disseminate their "Brounsoun", a sonic expression inspired by the ancient to future traditions of Jazz, Rock, Funk, Hardcore, Afrocentric Hip hop, Dub, film music and African/Indian trance sounds.

The Fellinis play this NOW music with passion, precision and soul in energetic performances that embrace freedom and structure equally. Out of nowhere, improvised themes and motifs morph into well crafted songs with evocative melodies, exotic harmonies and infectious rhythms.

It is a music of the moment reflecting the lives of three exceptional musicians living and creating in the Bay Area, California.

“the Broun Fellinis glide easily and often from frenzied excursions to plaintive exotic melodies to hypnotic grooves.” Downbeat Magazine

The trio has toured with Ben Harper and shared the stage with George Clinton, Gil Scott-Heron, the Roots, Meshell Ndegeocello, Rafael Saadiq, Mos Def, Erykah Badu, Galactic, Bad Brains, Ravi Coltrane, Les Claypool, The Last Poets, Living Colour, Zakir Hussain, Bernie Worrell, Jimmy Smith, Medeski, Martin, Wood, the Yellowjackets, and many more.

Other notable performances include the San Sebastian International Jazz Festival in Spain, the opening of the Yerba Buena Center For The Arts in San Francisco, and on the San Francisco Virgin Megastore’s roof for their grand opening that featured the Broun Fellinis and Cyndi Lauper. Top venues like the Independent, Yoshi's, and House Of Blues have hosted the group as well as the Stern Grove and Du Maurier festivals. They’ve been profiled by Downbeat, Spin, Billboard, NPR, KCRW, Radio Nova in France, and more.
