Rebel Babel Open Big Bang

is a series of our acoustic and ecological flash mobs and performances, during which we place orchestras in the strangest spaces, playing with the city environment for ex. to the tempo of metro escalator in Barcelona or with the ship’s siren of Dar Młodzieży in San Francisco or with car horns in Madrid. Here we give free rein to our imagination, at the same time paying attention to the beauty of the natural sound of the instruments and the possibility of ecological playing without the use of electricity thanks to the self-sufficient power of marching orchestras. As part of this initiative, we also organize performances of up to half a thousand musicians playing together as part of Rebel Babel.

Brasswood Fest

This is the result of our international activities and contacts. This is our festival organized in the magical Forest Opera in the beautiful seaside resort of Sopot at the meeting point of many cultures. We combine live instruments with electronics and other musical genres, creating intimate acoustic concerts next to an impressive greenery. We meet orchestras from various countries with soloists of various musical genres and 50% of the concerts are without electricity. The magical land of brass and wooden instruments is also a place of dialogue between tradition and futurism. We mix folk and ethno with electronics, rap and modern music, creating workshops, eco - parades, performances and awarness meetings. The whole event ends with a concert of Rebel Babel Ensemble with all the guests dedicated to foundations that protect the natural environment.
