About the Program
Get ready to get down with Cha Wa and the “hypnotic, kinetic sound of New Orleans Mardi Gras Indian krewes” (Rolling Stone).
Radiating the fiery energy of the city’s street culture, Cha Wa pays tribute to the nineteenth-century African American men who first marched in Native American dress through New Orleans. Immerse yourself in their vibrant traditions and dance along to their funk-laced beats and bass-heavy sousaphone blasts.
Arrive early to hear a DJ set by Dr. Fuzzy of the Long Beach Funk Festival and funk band Delta Nove!
