Spotlight on the City is the program on BTR that features musicians and bands from local music scenes across the globe. For the month of May, you'll hear 16 acts from Belgrade, Serbia.
Raya Brass Band is a Brooklyn-based five-piece with a reputation for starting a party everywhere they (and their horns) go. Drawing on Balkan music, New Orleans brass, punk rock, out jazz, and other international inspirations, the band crafts a whirlwind of high energy, body-moving tunes. They stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to give us a taste of the magic and talks about some of the inspiration behind their music.
