The Sugartone Brass Band is New York's premiere New Orleans-style brass band devoted to bringing the traditions of the Big Easy to the Big Apple. They have been featured in New York City's Annual Halloween Parade since 2004. The Sugartone Brass band is dedicated to promoting the traditions of New Orleans' music worldwide. Their first album, "Live from Brooklyn," was released in February.

The new issue is here! As always, we have worked hard to bring you a unique perspective on an extraordinary city––a view into New Orleans that only Habitus can offer. Some highlights include:

  • A remarkable personal essay abut the conflict between restoration and renewal from Rodger Kamenetz
  • Poetry from Andrei Codrescu and Maxine Cassin, fiction from Nancy Lemann and Moira Crone
  • A guide to disaster and memory from environmental historian Ari Kelman
  • L.J. Goldstein’s photo essays on the city's dynamic street culture
  • Ronne Hartfield’s extraordinary memoir about the intersection of African-American and Jewish roots in one New Orleans family
  • Interviews with musician-historian Ned Sublette and the Brazilian urban planning innovator Jaime Lerner
