Fanfarai combined the saxophones, congas, trumpets, trombone, drums or the tuba to these traditionnal instruments, readapted the repertoire for all these instruments and introduced – naturally -Afro-Cuban, Salsa, Latin and jazz influences.
The North African music has never been played this way (with a brass band) and this is what makes Fanfarai so original and the project so successful. The music of Fanfarai is a cheerful combination that is as interesting as the diversity of cultures and trajectories of the musicians themselves. French, Algerian, Marocan, Franco-Italien musicians bring their energy and talent together and keep sharing their own particular musical heritage with all the other members of the band. The basis of the repertoire of Fanfarai is Algerian and Moroccan and each member of the band is free to bring his own influences onto it. Fanfarai succeeds on each performance – in the streets or on stages – to carry its audience away beyond ethnic descent or nationality, towards territories of tolerance, discovery and pleasure.
Tani the second of the band was released on May 2013 and gives a good view of their creativity with personal compositions and new reggae and funk influences.
The leitmotiv of the band is: ”to learn from one another and to share with all ”
