Genghis Barbie

Time to put the kids to bed! Today we take a look at Genghis Barbie, a horn quartet group and "the leading post post-feminist feminist all-female horn experience."  These four young ladies and their combined 24 years of conservatory training have taken their pink bells(and pink mutes, outfits, etc.) and unique style all over the country.  Playing mostly pop music from the 70's, 80's, 90's, and present, Genghis Barbie wows their audience with their musicality, flair, and distinctiveness.

Check out this one-of-a-kind brass ensemble perform "The Thong Song" with their horns in the streets of New York City.


  1. The post Feminist brass ensemble movement seems to be getting big again. There is an all female brass quintet formed at Luther. Maybe there should be a post on this comparing to low brass chamber music....

  2. There's also an all-female brass quintet called Stilleto. They performed at ITG in 2012 and it was a wonderful show.

    The name Ghengis Barbie kind of reminds me of the naming conventions of Marylin Manson's band. I wonder if they did that on purpose.
