Description

Music is everywhere in New Orleans; it's the lifeblood of the city and the people. The Rough Guide to the music of New Orleans gives you a real taste of the whole New Orleans scene. Soak up the classic piano jazz of Professor Longhair, the thick horn blasts of The Hot 8 Brass Band, or the deep grooves of Dumpstaphunk, the latter of which also provide the full-length and fantastically funky bonus album included with this Rough Guide.

Ask any inhabitant of New Orleans, Louisiana and they will tell you that they are part of the 'New Orleans Nation' – an anecdote that captures the independent and uniquely creative vibe of the great city so well. Consider Afro-American, Latino, European Creole and Cajun influences, and then add in the sounds of Mardis Gras Indian music, and you start to get the picture that this city is quite simply like no other.

The bonus album features Dumpstaphunk, a band who have been described by the New York Times as 'the best funk band from New Orleans right now', and they don't say these things lightly! So put your troubles in the 'dumpsta' it is time to get up, shake your sacroiliac and feel the (Dumpsta)-phunk!
