Brigade Futur III

Jazztage Kick-off!

Eco-collapse, consumerism, privatization: topics that demand social discourse. Here in the dadaistic-jazzy headlock of Brigade Futur III.

The Berlin collective Brigade Futur III is a big band unlike any other in Germany. The musicians of Brigade Futur III have come together to take up the legacy of Bertold Brecht and Kurt Weill. Especially in the conviction that artists must express themselves politically. The devastating effects of predatory capitalism are becoming increasingly clear and it is clear that things cannot go on like this.
In their songs, they tell stories that deal with what concerns them personally and describe their dilemmas without threatening to point a finger in a lecturing manner. The music oscillates between early Duke Ellington, polyrhythmic overlays and post 2010 hip-hop.
