“An antithesis to the traditional village brass band: mobile big band, caravan of dilettantes with a touch of insanity”: that is how the Masala Brass Kollektiv regards itself! The open collective (anyone can join!) of up to 25 musicians can be seen on streets, in squares and on stage both in Austria and abroad since 2007. With a repertoire of upbeat music in a wide range of styles, we can be seen in concert, at parties, festivals, weddings, and have even appeared in film and television productions. For 2023 we are planning our fourth international urban brass festival "Skappa’nabanda!" – Austria’s first street band festival – in our hometown of Graz.
