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” that came out Ocotber 30th and reached #2 on the CMJ World Music Charts. 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, and when they take the stage, their infectious grooves result in a dance party that leaves smiling concert goers eager for the next song.
