High Energy DC Gypsy-Brass-Rock Act – Black Masala
I Love You Madly Tour Dates
Can you hear that? Can you feel it? It’s the sound of Washington, DC’s eclectic high-energy brass band Black Masala. Formed in 2012, the band creates an irresistible dance groove packed with funk, gypsy-punk and soul. Black Masala has made a big impact as one of the most exciting live acts in the region and is the winner of four Washington Area Music Awards “Wammies”, including Best New Artist and Best World Music Album.
In just three short years, Black Masala has released its debut album, multiple remixes, live recordings and its follow-up second album, “I Love You Madly.” The new album showcases the band’s variety of influences and moods, ranging from bhangra and bounce to New Orleans funk and Balkan brass. This sound was forged on the road, playing countless shows up and down the east coast to enthusiastic crowds. Black Masala is part of a new generation of go-anywhere brass bands, which fits perfectly as this band gets all kinds of people dancing and smiling, having a great time to the beat.
On their second album it is clear that Black Masala are having a lot of fun incorporating various musical influences into their go-anywhere Brass sound. Ranging from Gypsy punk, Balkan brass and New Orleans funk, to Bhangra and bounce, this is an album for the multicultural music listener. The heavy horns and danceable rhythms tie “I Love You Madly” together and create an album that can be played for a wide range of audiences.
