Kotoko Brass / Celebration Brass Band at Stone Church
Kotoko Brass
Inspired by the traditional drum rhythms of Ghana, Kotoko Brass has created a unique, joyful, and improvisational style of West African dance music described by the Boston Globe as propulsive, infectious party music. The drums provide the heart and soul of Kotoko Brass  merging syncopated African percussion polyrhythms with hard-hitting dance grooves on the drumset. The horns blend traditional sounds of New Orleans with
the famous West African brass band sound heard from Ghana to Nigeria, and the keyboard and bass evoke classic African and Caribbean styles of highlife, afrobeat, and reggae. A celebratory and energetic synthesis of music, people, and cultures from around the world, Kotoko Brass features musicians from Ghana, Antigua, Japan, and the United States playing together in unity. Kotoko Brass has shared the stage with
Femi Kuti, the California Honeydrops, Vieux Farka Toure, Innov Gnawa, Take 6, the Boston Pops, Rubblebucket, and more.

Celebration Brass Band emerged in 2009, under the leadership of New Orleans native and Langdon NH resident Peter Simoneaux, as a means of developing a community of musicians dedicated to the study of traditional and contemporary New Orleans style brass band music. This is the music of jazz funerals and street parades in New Orleans, the style that gave birth to the careers of Buddy Bolden, Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, whose lineage continues to this day in the funky, driving street rhythms of groups like the Dirty Dozen, the Rebirth Brass Band, the New Birth, Treme, and countless others who have helped re-define the sounds of New Orleans music over the past 40 years
