Broun Fellinis

For 25 years, the BROUN FELLINIS (David Boyce, Kevin Carnes, Kirk Peterson) have been innovating and disseminating “Brounsoun,” a sonic expression that embraces freedom and structure equally, inspired by ancient to future traditions of Jazz, Rock, Funk, Hardcore, Afrocentric Hip hop, Dub, film music and African/Indian trance sounds. Improvised themes and motifs morph into well-crafted songs with evocative melodies, exotic harmonies and infectious rhythms. It is music of the moment reflecting the lives of three exceptional musicians living and creating in the Bay Area, California.

On June 25, 2016, the Broun Fellinis celebrated their 25th anniversary at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco.

Other notable performances: San Sebastian International Jazz Festival, YBCA, Stern Grove Festival, tour with Ben Harper, co-bills with Gil Scott-Heron, Meshell Ndegeocello, the Roots, Erykah Badu, Bad Brains, George Clinton, Rafael Saadiq, Mos Def, The Last Poets, Living Colour, Zakir Hussain, Bernie Worrell, Jimmy Smith, Galactic, Medeski/Martin/Wood, Ravi Coltrane, and many more.
