Fanfara Station is a celebration with a Balkan brass band, an entire North African rhythm section and contemporary electro Dance beats. It's a dance party created live by only three musicians thanks to the use of loop stations for live over-dubbing. The stage is flled with instruments: percussion: scascika, tar, bendir, darbuka and tabla next to the trumpet, trombone, clarinet and three Tunisian woodwinds: the nay, mizued and zocra. Then there are dozens of wires connecting loop stations, controllers and an array of efects pedals. A myriad of acoustic and electric sounds dialogue and sustain the voice of singer and song writer Marzouk Mejri.
The brass of Fanfara Station bring folk blues and Balkan accents into a electro acoustic North African universe represented by layers of percussion instruments, woodwinds and singing. Modern folk sensibilities are threaded into a contemporary electronic dance fabric.
Fanfara Staton's frst demo EP was completed in May of 2016 and their frst full album is slated for a fall 2017 release that will coincide with the premier of Ernesto Pagano's documentary on the life of Marzouk Mejri.
