Ze Tribu Brass Band (FR)

Exotic Brass Band


Ze Tribu Brass Band is a collective project created by Tribu Festival in 2010 around the repertoire of the brass bands. Today, about fourty musicians, professionals or amateurs, are part of this project which was conducted by Maciek Lasserre (saxophonist in Tarace Boulba) from its beginning until 2018. The musicians compose sometimes their own tunes, or they play a repertoire which revolves around ethiojazz, funk and cumbia.

For the 20th edition of Tribu Festival, they invited Louis Jacques from Super Parquet. He enabled them to enrich their repertoire with traditional music.

In 2018, the trombonist Fidel Fourneyron returned to play with Ze Tribu Brass Band during the Tribu Festival, accompanied by two Cuban musicians belonging to the ¿ Que Vola ? project, mix of rumba and jazz.

At the end of 2016, the brass band recorded four new tracks at the Artdam studio, accompanied by Maciek Lasserre. Those songs were featured on the first EP of Ze Tribu Brass Band, which has been released in 2017 during Tribu Festival.

In 2017, the trompetist and composer Aymeric Avice was on stage with the brass band during the release party. A nice meeting between the founder of the Jarawa project quintet and the musicians.

In 2016, the brass band welcomed during Tribu Festival the percussionist and multi-instrumentalist Jaime Salazar, professor and coordinator of the world musics department at the Conservatoire of Chalon-sur-Saône. He is also a member of the artists collectiv Grolektif and the latin core band Pixvae. During his stay, he shared his love for traditional and popular latin american musics with the brass band. He added to the repertoire two songs called « Fiesta de Negritos » and « Fiesta en Corraleja ».

In 2015, the brass band welcomed the trombonist Fidel Fourneyron, member of the National Orchestra of Jazz, the Coax collective and the Carreau du Temple brass band in Paris. Three new songs has been brought by Fidel, which allowed the repertoire of Ze Tribu Brass Band to get bigger and bigger!




1st October 2017 : the brass band released its first album during Tribu Festival.
