All About That Brass: Raya Brass Band and ""Shapkarevo Kasapsko Oro"

B-Side | Raya Brass Band - "Shapkarevo Kasapsko Oro" from Brooklyn Independent Media on Vimeo.

It's all about that brass...the Raya Brass Band, that is. Started in 2008, this band calls itself "The Balkan Sound of NYC." The Raya Brass Band draws its musical inspiration from the Balkans, obviously, but also punk rock, out jazz and other international musical styles. This song, Shapkarevo Kasapsko Oro, can be found on their 2013 album This Train Is Now. The video is a live performance of the song.
