The sound is built entirely of brass instruments: ensembles include brass, woodwind instruments and a percussion section. Brass band music is often referred to as music of the streets and the music of the people. It speaks to the diverse cultural roots of New Orleans and can be heard at second lines, weddings and festivals. Brass band music is passionate, vibrant, exciting and it speaks to the soul and makes everyone move their feet.
