Cha Wa

More Info

New Orleans brass band-meets-Mardi Gras Indian outfit Cha Wa radiates the energy of the city's street culture. My People, the band's follow-up to their Grammy-nominated album Spyboy, feels like pure joy, a distillation of generations of New Orleans expression. But it also never fails to remind us how hard-won that joy was and still is: not least in the tense, funky and explosive title track, with its declaration "My people, we're still here."
