avatar for Broun Fellinis

Broun Fellinis

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, Broun Fellinis -- percussionist Kevin Carnes, bassist Kirk Peterson, and woodwind player David Boyce -- have been doing exactly this. 

The Fellinis 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 trio has performed at the San Sebastian International Jazz Festival in Spain, the opening of the Yerba Buena Center For The Arts and the Stern Grove Festival, The Independent, Yoshi's, and the House Of Blues. 

Other notable performances include a tour with Ben Harper and 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. Downbeat and Spin magazines as well as NPR, KCRW, and Radio Nova in France have profiled the group.      

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