Hawai‘i is getting a little taste of New Orleans music this week.
Brothers Keith and Phillip Frazer founded the Rebirth Brass Band in the early 80’s playing a style of music known as “Second-Line”. It’s upbeat Jazz combined with elements of Funk, Soul, and Hip-Hop. Imagine a full horn section playing a funky groove, accompanied by handclaps and shouts. Second-line groups are a tradition in New Orleans, accompanying community events ranging from Mardi Gras parades all the way to Jazz funerals.
