Get into brass bands from New Orleans & beyond...http://www.funkish.audio/brass-band/.
No one else on earth can make a sousaphone sound as dope as a funky New Orleans brass band.
Hearing one of these bands live is so much fun! It’s a lot cooler to feel the live sousaphone bass blast in your body than some electro dub-step bass wobble.
The modern New Orleans funky brass bands mix in some hip-hop, boom-bap drumming, and sometimes bass & guitar. They maintain a deep New Orleans tradition, while keeping the music fresh & relevant, as they turn on new audiences touring around the US & Europe.
The brass band vibe has spread around the US, and is beloved in the UK as well. These two playlists also highlight some exciting international brass bands — from the Balkan Gypsy tradition, and India too.
Give 'em a listen...
