WhatFlag was formed when Gani and I relocated to the UK in 2011.
WhatFlag presents cutting edge, inspiring, boundary pushing sounds, originally born in 1998 in the Middle East under the name of WhiteFlag, a band formed by three musicians from Gaza and three musicians from Tel Aviv.
WhatFlag are: Gani Tamir (Tel Aviv) Vocals/Vocal Trumpet, Mark Smulian (Tel Aviv) Bass/Composition, Gianni Cossu (Sardinia) Guitar, Myke Vince (Bristol, UK) and Jools Scott (Bath , UK) WhatFlag today is about trying to blur ‘borders and boundaries’ in their music and the musicians allow themselves to take on the Duke Ellington attitude of ‘ if it sounds good it is good’.
Whatflag’s music is part funk and blues, jazz and Middle Eastern and some more.
