Gli Empatee du Weiss portano sul palco un’ondata di energia con la potenza dello Ska e del Balkan, poi scendono, si appoggiano con fare deciso sul levare del Reggae e rotolano fino allo Swing, tutto con suoni nuovi, originali e ricercati. Dai fiati alle corde trattano gli strumenti con elegante irriverenza; ballando verranno ad assistere al vostro concerto come se per empatia i ruoli si fossero incredibilmente invertiti.

Il progetto nasce nel 2010, con sezione di fiati e sezione ritmica, trovando spazio dai festival Reggae ai festival jazz, mantenendo un costante coinvolgimento del pubblico.

Old Tricks for Young Dogs

Nel 2013 dopo varie sperimentazioni e scomposizioni di generi danno alla luce il loro primo album “The Scomposer” con cui hanno l’opportunità di calcare diversi palchi e aprire grandi artisti fra cui The Skatalites e Alpha Blondy. Nel 2016 registrano il loro nuovo lavoro “Old Tricks for Young Dogs”, più maturo e ragionato, con importanti collaborazioni fra cui la voce di Matilda De Angelis dei Rumba de Bodas e Mr. T-Bone, già trombonista di Giuliano Palma & the Bluebeaters. Con quest’ultimo hanno avuto l’opportunità di portare la loro musica fuori dall’Italia suonando a Londra (Hootananny Brixton) ed in Spagna (tra cui l’Iboga Summer Festival).

Biography

Empatee du Weiss unleash quite a lot of energy as they bring on stage the power and strength of Ska and Balkan music. Then they sit back on the upbeat of Reggae and tumble and roll on the syncopated accents of Swing and Hip-Hop. All this with an original and refined sound.

Both horns and the rhytmic section are treated with graceful irreverence; as the musicians will rush to your concert and dance, as in a role-play. are treated with graceful irreverence; as the musicians will rush to your concert and dance, as in a role-play. The project came to birth as an all original instrumental band in 2010 . They find their place both in Reggae/Ska and Jazz festivals, always dragging the audience in their music.
