Biography

There more than one artist called Brazzaville.

1) US band
2) Belgian funk band
3) Swedish ska band

1) Brazzaville was formed by David Brown in 1998 in Los Angeles, California. While on tour playing saxophone with Beck, David bought an old guitar in Barcelona and began writing the songs for what would be the first Brazzaville album, 2002. Since then Brazzaville has recorded an additional 3 albums, Somnambulista, Rouge on Pockmarked Cheeks and Hastings Street. The original version of the band included many musicians, although the core group consisted of Kenny Lyon, Joe Zimmerman, Joel Virgel-Vierset, Mike Bolger and David Ralicke.

The band has toured the east and west coasts of the US as well as playing shows in Europe, Russia and Kazakhstan.

In 2003 David sold everything and moved to Barcelona. There he formed a new version of Brazzaville consisting of himself, two American expatriates (Ivan Knight and Brady Lynch) and two local boys (Paco Jordi and Richie Alvarez). In 2004, Mimicry Records released a greatest hits record called Welcome to Brazzaville. The band’s fifth album, East L.A. Breeze, was released in June 2006, and tracks are currently streaming on their myspace page.

2) Brazzaville (Belgian band) is a 7-headed band that produces an exciting, adventurous and especially a funky sound. The music is inspired by 70’s jazz & funk, afrobeat and rare grooves.
They recorded their debut album “Days of thunder, days of grace” in march 2008 featuring four special guests; Zap Mama, Mo & Grazz & Zita Swoon’s Amel Serra.

    Если это и дерьмо, то очень теплое, мягкое и ароматное. В него приятно окунуться, оно буквально захлестывает тебя и ты тонешь в ощущеньях весеннего солнышка, радости и спокойствия.
