Down by the Riverside Secondline

The Down by The Riverside walking street parade on November 26, 2005 was the first big second-line (five hours long beginning to end), after the horrors of Hurricane Katrina. This soundscape features the Hot 8 Brass Band in the foreground and from time to time, at rests, at breaks, the To Be Continued Brass Band in the background, a prayer and an homage to the fallen great Mardi Gras Indians’ Big Chief of Chiefs, Allison Tootie Montana and a singing crowd trying to let go and be free all along the way.
