Hailing from Trinidad, Fimber Bravo has taken the steel pan into a different league, as he will show when he plays Brighton Dome Studio Theatre on Saturday, September 27 at 8pm
Spokeswoman Emma Robertson explains: “A veteran in the music biz wars, Bravo is one of the most influential exponents of the steel pan in contemporary music. He is a founder member of the 20th Century Steel Band, whose record Heaven & Hell became a hip-hop touch stone, namechecked and sampled by Grandmaster Flash, Doug E Fresh, Soul II Soul, J-Lo and many more among the hip hop fraternity.
“He has loaned his talents to an astonishing array of artists, from Winifred Atwell right through to Sun Ra Arkestra, Blur, Morcheeba, Hot Chip, Zongamin and Mickey Moonlight. He was also a Musical Director of Steel n’ Skin, whose music was recently re-issued by EM Records (Japan) and Honest Jons (UK).
“2013s Con-Fusion album was selected as one of Rough Trade’s Albums of the Year. Released on Moshi Moshi Records, it was an immediate favourite of label boss Stephen Bass.”
