Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (September 15, 2018)

The British wind-band called the Trans-Siberian March Band is sometimes described as the Sex Pistols of Balkan brass music. Beginning in the 1990s, Balkan brass-band music became popular in Europe. It uses the traditional wind-band instruments, but employs the rhythms and harmony typically found in the Balkans, especially Serbia, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Moldova, and Romania. The tempos of the music are typically very fast. Today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion begins with a cover of “Tradition” from Fiddler on the Roof.” This performance is in the tradition of the Balkan brass bands.
