Synopsis

Album Description
The music of the black Mardi Gras Indians is a vital part of New Orleans culture, and some of the most African-influenced traditional urban music remaining in America. Recorded live during the summer of 1987 at the H&R Bar in the Second Ward of New Orleans, this is the first-ever "live in the context" Indians recording, and one of the few to feature the underrecorded Monk Boudreaux. And, unlike the majority of Mardi Gras Indians recordings, this album features only voices and percussion -- no sweeteners!
