Shows

  • 2013

    Dec 7

    New Orleans, LA, US | 8:00pm

    Africa Brass, featuring the talents of Troi Bechet and Tim Green, is honored to present “Africa to Armstrong,” a riveting journey through New Orleans’ music and cultural history and a uniquely sensational experience shared by locals and visitors alike! What You’ll Hear: The “Bamboula” rhythm is the backbeat, the thread that ties the show together and will be heard in many of the songs i.e. “Africa,” “St. James Infirmary,” “Congo Square,” Sidney Bechet’s “Under Creole Moon,” and Louis’ rendition of “Skokiaan,” just to name a few! This musical journey also includes Mardi Gras Indian, Gospel, Brass Band, and Creole influences. Join Africa Brass on Saturday, December 7th at 8 p.m. at The Old U.S. Mint as they celebrate the musical legacy of New Orleans from its origins in Africa, to Congo Square, to Louis Armstrong. “Africa to Armstrong” is a must-see for anyone who loves The Big Easy! http://www.africanola.org/africatoarmstrong.htm
