Our collaborators are critical and creative practitioners of all stripes, hailing from the Bay Area and points across the country and globe.
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.
