The “Fexer” brass trio mixes folk music with modern genres and reinterprets rock classics with gusto.
Making traditional tunes funky
The word “Fexer” is Bavarian dialect for “offspring” and the name chosen by three young musicians from the Oberpfalz region for what is probably the smallest brass band in the world. With trumpet, tuba and flugelhorn, Alexander Schuhmann and the siblings Sophie and Daniel Barth not only reinterpret polkas and waltzes with gusto but also rock classics, such as “Don’t stop believing” by US rock band Journey. Infusing well-known tunes with their unique musical flair, the band represents a new kind of Bavarian brass music, mixing traditional folk music and modern tunes. The “Fexer” trio is touring all over Germany where their gigs go down a treat with music fans.
