Hi afterworkers!!

The event of the year in New Orleans finally in Paris! As famous as that of Venice or Rio de Janeiro, the Carnival of New Orleans has established very specific traditions.

Parades alot, dances, music, festivities... to the rhythm of jazz! The pivot of the festival: parades organized by the krewes (from the English crew), who create their own floats. Parades are usually made up of floats and marching bands.

The culmination of the festivities obviously takes place on the very day of Mardi Gras. It gives rise to a real colorful bacchanal in the Vieux Carré (French Quarter): skin colors, because New Orleans is a mixed city, but also colors of costumes, torches and Mardi Gras decorations. Purple, green and gold predominate everywhere, the official colors of the event, which can even be found on the King Cake, the huge cake emblem of Mardi Gras. A legendary party that we will have in Paris on Saturday April 9, Protected content !

On stage or in the street, the New Orleans brass band Lulu & The Comets All-Stars, it's for 20 years and 2 albums, the intact passion of Funk, Jazz, Hip Hop and very groovy sounds, live from New Orleans.

And Cap To Nola, brass band made up of amateur musicians who explore, under the direction of Bruno Wilhelm, a repertoire of music from New Orleans.

And the renowned DJ Cucurucho, Dr Traore and Groovalizacion DJ's will be in charge of the warm up & after-show.
