From Goethe Institut:
With its trademark mixture of Bavarian folk music and ska punk, this band will make you want to dance.
Enthusiastic dancers can look forward to this event: the brass band, well-known for its ecstatic concerts, starts its world tour on January 11 in Ho Chi Minh City.
Based in a small town in Bavaria, LaBrassBanda were still an insider’s tip in 2007 with their extraordinary mixture of Bavarian folk music, ska punk, techno, reggae and brass. Since then, ten years have passed and much has happened. With performances in the USA, Russia, Zimbabwe and England and at international festivals, LaBrassBanda have long been known across the borders of Germany. Their tour through Austria on vintage mopeds and a tractor during the 2008 European Football Championship is legendary. On the way, they gave spontaneous concerts. For the band’s tenth anniversary, there will be a new album called “Around the World” (release date: 3.03.2017).
That the band is from Bavaria can both be heard and seen. The texts in Bavarian dialect are hardly understood outside of Bavaria, but that doesn’t matter. They enter the stage barefoot, in Lederhosen. Anyone who attends a LaBrassBanda concert has to be cosmopolitan and eager to discover something new, says frontman Stefan Dettl. We think: It’s about time for the band to come to Vietnam!
