Brass Ensemble Music from Other Cultures

Jaipur Kawa Brass Band
On Wednesday I gave a listening presentation titled "Brass Ensemble Music from Other Cultures". Below is a table with the playlist, providing information on the selection, ensemble, recording and origin, as well as links to each ensemble. As I mentioned, this was not a comprehensive survey, as it did not include anything from the continents of Africa, Australia and Asia. I invite you to research other brass ensemble traditions outside of European/American genres and share with the class or in the comments below:
