The Wild Magnolias, “Handa Wanda”

I’ve been watching HBO’s Treme lately, and my favourite musical performances are definitely of “Big Chief” Albert Lambreaux and his Mardi Gras Indians doing drum practices. This cut by Bo Dollis and The Wild Magnolia Tribe captures that amazing percussive exhuberance of the Indian practices in Treme, and kicks it up a notch with a rollicking piano and a funky bassline.
