Take A Trip To ‘Treme’ With Juvenile, Galactic & The Dirty Dozen Brass Band

The HBO series Treme, much like the city that it's based on, is not for everybody. You either love it or you hate it; you get it or you don't. And just like New Orleans, the show continues to chug along with or without your appreciation, marching to the beat of its own drum. So when the second season premiered this past Easter Sunday, some were wondering what adjustments, if any, the show's creator David Simon would make to attract a bigger audience. The answer was not many. While the show may have added a few new characters and plot developments, the music and the culture of the city was still the main focal point, whether you like it or not. The show practically burst at the seams from the abundance of indigenous music featured on the show, including a key performance from rapper Juvenile and local bands Galactic and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. The song they performed, "From the Corner to the Block," perfectly encompasses all the sounds of the city, from the bounce rap that made Juve popular long before Ca$h Money became an army to the big brass and funk sounds that often fill the streets at any given time. Check out this short clip to get a feel for what Treme is bringing to the forefront this season and to see what the Big Easy has to offer.
