Jean-Paul Bourelly (guitar) is an innovative and experimental guitarist and composer who excels at blending and bending various musical styles into cohesive expression. His music is informed by the migrant community of Haiti and the southern culture of Chicago’s south side that he grew up in. His musical output spawns a diverse array of variations of funky otherness.
Sadiq Bey (vocals, electronics) began his social investigation with performance and poetry in post-insurrection Detroit’s experimental music scene with artists like Faruq Z. Bey, Kenny Cox, poet Dudley Randall and drummer, Roy Brooks. Formerly known as the frontman for Don Byron’s NuBlaxploitation, Tuskegee Experiments and The Othello Syndrome with pianist Uri Caine, he received the 2008 Berlin Studio Project Award for his recording Slow the Ear (Allzeit Musik).
Guests David Boyce (saxophone) and Kevin Carnes (drums) frequently perform with the Broun Fellinis in the Bay Area.
