Brave New Band

 

Led by Chris Helman on soprano saxophone and Nicole Arendt on marimba, Brave New Band is an ensemble of dynamic musicians performing original, genre-bending music. Their compelling performances bridge the gap between classical and jazz, layering carefully crafted through-composed music and free improvisation over the edgy and danceable support of an alternative rhythm section. With gorgeous, haunting melodies and a crystalline purity of sound, they achieve an exhilarating fusion of classical virtuosity and world-jazz drive. Audiences love their music, describing it as, “stunningly beautiful – radiating sonic joy” and, “incredible, feel-it-in-your-solar-plexus beautiful”. Influenced by Steve Reich, Jan Garbarek, modern classical music, and all
the best rock bands, Brave New Band is committed to exploring and extending the dramatic and emotional power of live acoustic music.
