This “Live from Minnesota” segment features the Brass Messengers—a Twin Cities’ band that formed from the Heart of the Beast May Day parade. With Caribbean and Balkan influences, the Brass Messengers describe themselves as, “a sprawling fun factory of musicians.” This show was recorded at the Ritz Theater in Minneapolis on March 12, 2012, and features contributions from the Yale Women’s Slavic Chorus.
