While the musical heritage of New Orleans is diverse and rich, brass band music has become one of the most iconic forms of music emanating from the city. In his new book, Roll With It, Tulane University assistant professor of music Matt Sakakeeny takes a look at not only the music, but also the culture and community that revolve around the genre. In this video, Sakakeeny talks a bit about brass band music and why he decided to take a look at it through an academic lens.
