#3499: Hot Brass Band Party

Email a Friend
The documentary Brasslands is out now.
From

Listen to as much brass band music as we can handle on this New Sounds program.  From Egypt to Rajastan, from New Orleans to Benin, there's party music aplenty.  Hear music from the soundtrack to the film "Brasslands," documenting the pilgrimage of New York-based Zlatne Uste to the 50th annual trumpet competition in a tiny Serbian village, Guča.  Then, listen to the Gangbé Brass Band from Benin and their unexpected collaboration with the Belgian band Jaune Toujours.

Also, hear music from Frank London's Klezmer All-Stars together with the Egyptian Hasaballa Brass Band, as well as a tune from the Youngblood Brass Band from Wisconsin.  Plus, there's joyous Indian brass from the Jaipur Kawa Brass Band of Rajasthan and music of Daft Punk arranged by Brassft Punk.  All that, and more.
