Les Frères Smith live in Brussels

Les Frères Smith are a 13 piece afrobeat / afrofunk / ethiojazz / globalgroove orchestra from Paris, France.

The first album, Contreband Mentality, released on vinyl and CD, was produced by les Freres Smith themselves with support and precious help by mythical afrobeat label Comet Records led by Eric Trosset, featuring the great Tony Allen and the crazy guitarist minister Oghene Kologbo from Fela’s Africa 70. It was mixed by afrobeat specialist Loik Dury (Kraked Records), and mastered by experienced producer Grant Phabao (Timec).

The band is currently on a European tour, having played at the Roskilde Music Festival in Denmark, at the Bar du Matin in Brussels, and heading to a couple more dates in Germany, before getting back to the studio to record their next album.
