New Orleans is a city defined by its unique and colorful history. It's for that reason that most tend to view the place as something of a musical museum while ignoring the towns vibrant and innovative new music. In New Orleans, the hip-hop at the heart of todays culture emerged from an energetic, highly eroticized and occasionally gender-bending music called bounce. And the truth is, the entire towns seemingly disparate styles jazz, brass bands and funk as well as the newer "bounce" influenced hip hop, are all intrinsically linked. There is a particular inclusiveness about the place which connects both its people and their music. And now, for the first time ever, all these sounds have been combined on one undeniably original record. With YA-KA-MAY, long time NOLA residents, GALACTIC have made an album that reflects the city as they see it - blending all the towns distinctive sounds in a way no band has before.

YA-KA-MAY is available now on Anti Records. The album features established legends such as the Rebirth Brass Band, Irma Thomas, Big Chief Bo Dollis, Allen Toussaint and Walter "Wolfman" Washington with younger artists like Trombone Shorty and Corey Henry, John Boutt, Josh Cohen and Scully, and Glen David Andrews, as well as groundbreaking new Bounce artists like Cheeky Blakk, Big Freedia, Katey Red, and Sissy Nobby. The end result is New Orleans like its truly meant to be heard, and pure GALACTIC.
