Element Brass Band's Highlights Second Line Music


Second Line is an old tradition with brass band parades out of New Orleans. Its roots can be traced to West African culture and is an exaggerated, free-form style of performance that became popular in the U.S. just after the Civil War. Sacramento’s Element Brass Band celebrates the music and the style – the band performs this afternoon at McClatchy Park for Sol Collective's Global Local.
