Katrina Music, USA


What is it about New Orleans… and the spirit of the people who live there that could produce a mythology… a soul… a humanity… that has touched people around the world?

Real New Orleans music is best heard in a real New Orleans music club - where the music rises every night - and never stops. Jazz. Reggae. Gospel. Hip Hop. R&B. Zydeco. Rock. Blues.  The city has repeatedly catalyzed American music, as sounds that started in the streets of New Orleans reached the world as jazz, rock 'n' roll, rhythm and blues. Within the songs is the tension and fascination between classes and cultures: African, European, Caribbean, Native American, rich and poor - and some of the best music in the world.
