It’s shaping up to be a stellar year for celebrated New Orleans outfit Galactic. On February 2nd the band will release their groundbreaking new album YA-KA-MAY, a visionary mix of intertwining New Orleans sounds from jazz to brass band to funk and the distinctive gender bending regional hip hop known as "bounce." Vocals are provided by an eclectic roster of area legends including Allen Toussaint and Irma Thomas as well as emerging underground bounce artists like Cheeky Blakk, Big Freedia and Sissy Nobby.
