Music of New Orleans

Gesa Power House Theater, 111 N. 6th , Walla Walla

Just the name creates visions of festivals, dance, mystery, allure and history. New Orleans is the cradle of jazz and home to many distinct musical styles ranging from the modern to the traditional. With so many cultures melded together, musical influences from around the world – from Congo drumming to European horns - come together to create unique new sounds that could only have come from New Orleans.
