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.
Featured song: “Unify” // Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
