Brigade Brings A Different Kind Of Brass To New Orleans http://wwno.org/post/what-cheer-brigade-brings-different-kind-brass-new-orleans <p><em>New Orleans thinks of brass band music as its own, the unmistakable mix of live horns and percussion, and the traditional brass band songs. But a 20-piece brass band from Rhode Island swept through town recently, with Balkan, Klezmer&nbsp;and Bollywood beats thrown in the mix. These Providence musicians call New Orleans their sister city, and play a different kind of brass when they're here.</em></p><p> Mon, 05 Aug 2013 14:35:15 +0000 Laine Kaplan-Levenson 40534 at http://wwno.org
