    Remixing Mardi Gras Music

    Remixing Mardi Gras Music with Terence Blanchard and Nick Spitzer

    From the webpage:

    For another installment in our occasional 'Re-Mixing' series, we ask jazz artist Terence Blanchard and his friend, Nick Spitzer, host of public radio's American Routes, to help us play the old and new songs of Mardi Gras, in a way you'll only hear on The Takeaway.

    From the web page:


    IT'S CARNIVAL TIME!

    February 7th, 2018

    From New Orleans to southern France, Trinidad to Brazil, we celebrate Mardi Gras masquerading and dancing to the beat of Carnival music. We’ll visit with Mardi Gras Indian Chief Monk Boudreaux as he suits up in handmade, feathered regalia and struts through the streets with his gang. Then we travel to southern France for the Carnival parade and music of Nice, and costumed revelry a few hours east in the wine country town of Limoux. Back home in French Louisiana, it’s the Cajun Courir de Mardi Gras where beggar clowns dance for a chicken to put in a communal gumbo feast. Plus calypso, New Orleans brass bands and rhythm & blues classics to keep the krewe mamboing through the end of Fat Tuesday.
