The New Orleans’ second line parade is one of the many unique musical traditions of the swinging city. The dancing street-procession marks important life events - weddings, funerals, anniversaries and even new when a new business opens its doors.

To celebrate the release of their album Hard Work Hard Money, Wellington’s Richter City Rebels brought a bit of the New Orleans second line celebrating to Cuba Street. Yadana Saw joined the party.
