Brass Liberation Orchestra

About

local2_190_85BRASS LIBERATION ORCHESTRA 

The Brass Liberation Orchestra (BLO) has performed primarily in the streets since 2002, establishing itself as a well known Bay Area musical group of brass, reeds and percussion, that helps build a society that respects all cultures and promotes cross- cultural understanding. BLO is an all volunteer, diverse group of cultural workers who have come together to use music as a political tool for social change. Recently, nominated by the SF Bay Guardian as the Bay area's "Best Street Performance Band," the BLO performs approximately four times each month, mostly on the streets, as a way to engage, inspire, and support those who are fighting on the front lines for a more just society. By drawing on a rich musical repertoire from around the world, such as the folk music of Italian political movements, US civil rights groups, workers' unions, Central American freedom songs, Nigerian Afro-beat, New Orleans second line traditions, and the vibrant music of the Roma, the BLO moves people to dance, sing, and join together to fight for a better world
