Part of the 2010 Next Wave Festival
The Red Hot series returns to the Next Wave Festival (Red Hot + Riot, 2006; Red Hot + Rio 2, 2008) with Red Hot + New Orleans , saluting the music of the Crescent City. From its deep traditions of jazz, blues, funk, and "second line" sounds to the more raucous "bounce" music scene, an exceptional group of emerging artists and established legends assemble to celebrate the resurgent and resilient sound of New Orleans, a city whose spirit has influenced countless artists and styles. Join music director Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews (one of the many NO musicians featured in the new HBO series Treme), as BAM brings a little piece of The Big Easy to Brooklyn.
This program is produced by BAM in association with The Red Hot Organization in recognition of World AIDS Day (Dec 1). Part of the proceeds will benefit New Orleans' NO/AIDS Task Force.
