New Orleans meets 90s club classics…a rave funeral without the body.

In New Orleans, funerals are celebrated in style, with noisy brass bands processing through the streets. The main section of the parade is known as First Line, but the real fun starts with the Second Line, those who follow the band to enjoy the music, marching with the musicians and twirling parasols or waving handkerchiefs.

Yn New Orleans mae angladdau yn cael eu dathlu mewn steil, bandiau pres swnllyd ar barêd drwy’r strydoedd. Y First Line yw prif adran y parêd, ond mae’r hwyl gwirioneddol yn dechrau gyda’r Second Line, sef  y rhai hynny sy’n dilyn y band i fwynhau’r gerddoriaeth, gan orymdeithio gyda’r cerddorion a throelli parasolau neu chwifio hancesi.
