Danish-American producer Noah Rosanes and his team of Danish musicians, graphic designers and animators have for the last two months been working on the music and the animated video for “Stop The Trumpet!”
Noah’s vocal is backup up by The Billy Surfs, Mexican born Julian Maraboto has a rap feature too, and the song title is enhanced by a distinctive trumpet theme! The song’s political references shine through when you listen to Rosanes’ lyrics with the ironic opening line “Build a wall ten feet taller, only makes your “hands” look smaller!”
While the world is watching the upcoming presidential election with trepidation, dual Danish-American citizen Noah Rosanes couldn’t stand by just watching. As Trump’s poisonous messages quickly escalated, so did Rosanes’ fear of what the future would bring under a Trump presidency. Rosanes created “Stop The Trumpet” based on this fear.
“Like many others, I felt powerless over the way Trump presented his twisted view of the world. I’m sincerely scared of how the world would look if he gets the world’s most powerful job,” says Noah Rosanes.
“Trump is a man without political experience who only incites hatred and creates division at a time when we in particular need to stand together around the world. Sometimes you have to step up and do something and as a musician this is my way to communicate ” explains Rosanes.
Noah Rosanes has already gotten a lot of support.
On November 8 – Election Day – the entire musical team behind “Stop The Trumpet” will be performing the song live at the Democratic Election Night Party 2016 in Copenhagen.
“Stop The Trumpet!” is out on all digital platforms and the video will be release on October 17.

Americans’ first reaction to anti-Trump music video “Stop The Trumpet”
15 October 2016
“Stop The Trumpet!” is an anti-Trump anthem accompanied by an animated music video. Here people on the street see the video before it came out!
From The Local in Denmark:
Danish anti-Trump campaigns target American voters
Published: 27 Oct 2016 09:06 GMT+02:00
If you were on the streets of Copenhagen this week or merely just scrolled through your social media feeds, you more than likely came across two Danish campaigns pleading with American voters to keep Donald Trump out of the White House.
On Wednesday, at least one of the 1-A buses in the Danish capital was wrapped in an advertisement from the Socialist People’s Party (SF) reading ‘Americans Abroad: Vote’. Just who SF wants the Americans to vote for was made quite obvious by the close-up of Republican candidate Donald Trump’s face in which the wheels of the bus were made to give him a pair of googly eyes.
This video is called Even This Bus In Denmark Is Rolling Its Eyes At Donald Trump.
SF leader Pia Olsen Dyhr told broadcaster DR that while the ad was meant in good fun, she finds the idea of a Trump presidency “frightening”.
“It is meant to be a bit funny. One can’t be in doubt that it was done tongue in cheek. We want to tell American citizens: ‘Remember to vote, it has consequences’”, Dyhr said.
The anti-Trump bus ad comes at the same time that a Danish-produced animated music video is quickly making the rounds on Facebook and Twitter.
Danish-American producer Noah Rosanes and a group of Danish backing musicians, graphic designers and animators last week released the music video ‘Stop the Trumpet’.
The song opens with a line that targets one of Trump’s signature positions and one of his perceived physical shortcomings: “Build a wall ten feet taller, only makes your hands look smaller”.
The video shows an animated Trump being blown back in forth by trumpets and getting stomped in a virtual game of whack-a-mole. The song’s chorus says “we’re gonna save the world” but only if we first “stop the Trumpet”.
According to a poll, only 4% of people in Denmark would vote for Trump if they could vote in the US presidential elections.
