Global Notes: Brass Bands

One of the films at this year's Chicago International Movies and Music Festival takes a look at the world's biggest brass festival in a small Serbian town. It follows three musical groups as they compete to win the world’s largest trumpet competition. The documentary Brasslands focuses mostly on the Balkan Brass tradition. But brass band music has touched many parts of the globe. This week on Global Notes we survey the truly global sounds of brass bands with Radio M and Morning Shift host Tony Sarabia. Brasslands is showing Friday May 2nd at 7:00pm at the Logan Theatre. (Photo: Flickr/WN Bishop)
