非洲:GANGBE BRASS BAND
金属管乐团成立于1994年,由8位来自贝宁的年轻爵士音乐家组成,旨在发扬贝宁音乐的独创性。乐团将现代与传统、爵士乐与传统贝宁民乐很好地融合在了一起。他们利用爵士乐的和声给传统的旋律注入了新的活力。这种融合既充分展现了古代音乐传统,又加入了现代西方的元素,可以说是过去与未来之间的音乐纽带。他们用贝宁当地的方言歌唱自己的日常生活,控诉社会上的种种不平等以及女性所遭受的苦难。乐团与众不同的乐器组成——小号、长号、大号、西非打击乐器以及声乐——从某种程度上来说也是西非殖民历史的产物:法国殖民者带来了铜管乐器,并且训练当地音乐家演奏欧洲风格的军乐和舞曲。
金属管乐团的音乐表达了对传统的尊重,是现代人与自己的先祖以及传统文化之间的和谐对话。目前乐团已发行了4张专辑,并且在欧洲和北美地区进行了大范围的巡演。

The Gangbe Brass Band was created in 1994 when 8 young jazz musicians, all from Cotonou-Benin, came together. Their option is to promote the originality of the music of Benin. The result is definitely both modern and traditional, as it mixes jazz and traditional Benin idioms. They take traditional rhythms, and invigorate them with jazz harmonies. The fusion reveals as much as possible of the musical tradition, while giving a western tone, to link the past and future. They sing in vernacular language about life in general, political injustices and the tribulations of women. Their unusual instrumentation---trumpet, trombone, and tuba, along with West African percussion and vocals---is, to some extent, part of West Africa's colonial legacy; French colonial officers imported brass instruments and trained local musicians to play European-style military and dance hall music.
The Gangbe Brass Band’s musical approach is respectful of tradition, and in harmony with their ancestors and culture. So far the band has released four albums, and tours extensively in Europe and North America.
