The Rebirth Brass Band have been at the forefront of the brass band revival that they helped kick off almost 30 years ago. Formed by the Frazier brothers, Phil and Keith, along with Kermit Ruffins in 1983, The Rebirth Brass band has gone from playing on corners in the French Quarter to selling out concert halls across the world and appearing in David Simon’s HBO hit “Tremé.

“Cha Wa” is a slang phrase used by every Mardi Gras indian tribe, meaning “We’re comin’ for ya” – and this band is definitely comin’ for ya!” – Broadway WorldAfter honing their explosive sound in clubs and festivals around the Crescent City, the Mardi Gras Indian funk band Cha Wa is back on tour. Their red-hot combination of two of New Orleans’ best traditions, Mardi Gras Indians and street level funk music. Cha Wa combines deep funk, percussive polyrhythms, and a mix of singing and Mardi Gras Indian chanting. All of these elements fuse into an intoxicating, hypnotic blend of culture that could only come out of the Crescent City.
