THE R H Y T H M . . . OF A COMMUNITY
NEW ORLEANS Te x t b y S h e r r y A n d e r s o n
New Orleans draws thoughts of Mardi Gras, PoBoys, and Gumbo. The birthplace of jazz music and home to significant contributors to all genres of popular American music from rock’n’roll to soul to rap. The city’s musical heritage and influence runs deep, yet locally retains its own unique flavor of latin flare, brass bands, funk, and rhythm and blues. As much as the sounds and smells of New Orleans dominate the mind, the modern story of New Orleans begins with Hurricane Katrina. The storm changed the city in many ways. People were lost, people were displaced, landmarks swept away. The people from New Orleans are passionate about their food, their music, and their resilient community.
