I've had strong sounds running through my veins all day today, and as far as I know, there are no musical recordings that, if listened to, would satisfy the urge my body, heart, and soul are feeling.
A new music I'd like to be able to listen to, channel, and witness: A combination of a marching band drumline mixed with political and socially conscious hiphop, with the energy of a go-go band and the pageantry of a New Orleans-style brass band.
Think about it: The drumline could include a tri tom, bass drum, snare, cymbal, whistle and -- maybe -- a xylophone. There would be two or three MCs. Maybe a drum major. And maybe some sideline cheerleaders or pompon girls.
The drumline's cadences would form the foundation of the lyrics and rhymes, and there'd be a lot of stepshow-like choreography.
Can anyone think of any nascent or existing examples of such music and performance? Is anyone interested enough in it that I could make it happen?
Count it off, now.
