This special Canada Day concert presentation will feature the Brothers alongside two of Canada's most eloquent and conscious free-style spoken word cyphers - the luminous Enlight (of Gruvasylum fame ) and the mighty Phatt Al (from God Made Me Funky)
Regular Lula patrons will recognize the brothers as the front line of the 10-man energized Salsa machine - Brownman & MARRON MATIZADO.
Conceived in the spirit of multi grammy winning outfit - "The Brecker Bros" the ALI BROS embody the essence of jazz improvisational ideology erupting against a backdrop of powerful urban grooves. Latin, funk, hip-hop, drum'n'bass, R'n'B all colliding with modern jazz textures. Their uncanny musical relationship enhanced by blood, Brownman and Marcus Ali together form an incredibly synergetic, almost telepathic bond making them one of the most called upon horn men in the city and often seen on the Lula Lounge's stage. They have appeared side by side countless horn sections in the Canadian professional music scene most nobably as the backbone to the multi-award winning latin-jazz ensemble CRUZAO, Juno nominated reggae artist Jason Wilson & TABARRUK, with reggathon superstar FITO BLANKO, modern house outfit FUNKY HI-LIFE, african masters RADIO NOMAD, merengue specialists DOMINICANADA and Lula Lounge's resident Salsa powerhouse MARRON MATIZADO (appearing the first Sat of every month at Lula).
Happy Birthday Canada!
