RAW NEW ORLEANS PRESENTS FIXATE @ REPUBLIC NOLA

Published in RAWdio

 

I DO know what it means to miss New Orleans.  I sang in a Jazz group in college, and one of the first places we went on tour was New Orleans.  It was a three day trip full of everything you would typically imagine happening in the Big Easy; beads, beers, debauchery, and BROS so many bros.... But the music has always been what truly stuck with me. Not the college students singing Jazz in a hotel conference room; but the kids outside in the street with tap shoes made out of soda pop cans, and the brass combo playing just a little too close to the door of that bar where they served the deep fried alligator bites, and we really wanted to walk in but couldn't because we didn't want to interrupt...  Let's see who's on the line-up to charm this NOLA crowd like I was charmed so many evenings ago: 

WHO’S PERFORMING??:: 

 

JameelNaimX

 

Cypha is a new orleans based hip hop artist with a unique outlook & approach on music . And not just hip-hop, his craft is similar to a collage of R&B, Jazz, and early 90's Soul music. He’s been a big fan of music ever since he heard Tupac at the age of 5.

 

Melomania

 

Very rarely does music touch your soul at first listen, but MeloMania’s tender music cannot be denied. MeloMania by its literal definition means “to be obsessed with music”, and this duo embodies exactly that.  Jordan Michael's vocals are impressive, the combo's music is remnicent of old Maktub and Pearl Jam recordings.
