It's party time!
Celebrating over 40 years since their founding in 1977, New Orleans-based Dirty Dozen Brass Band has taken the traditional foundation of brass band music and incorporated it into a blend of genres including bebop jazz, funk and R&B/Soul.
This unique sound, described by the band as a 'musical gumbo,' has made the Dirty Dozen Brass Band is a world famous music machine whose name is synonymous with genrebending romps and high-octane performances.
New Orleans brass band-meets-Mardi Gras Indian band Cha Wa radiates the fiery energy of the best features of the city's street culture. Not that you need a firm understanding of Indian or brass band culture to feel the dance-ready vibrations of Cha Wa's new music. "It's dance music so I think people are attracted to it. Even if people have no idea what the history is, it's automatically infectious," they explain.
