WTJU Special Katrina Programming: 2 Years Later
A Celebration of the Revitalization of New Orleans Music
Join the WTJU Jazz & Blues department August 27th through
September 2nd as we look past the silence and destruction of
Katrina towards the rebuilding and revitalization of the rhythms
of New Orleans. New Orleans music is defined by rhythm.. the
syncopated beat, improvisation, call and response...all combine
to make that unique sound that is New Orleans. It is a universal
expression that has crossed boundaries all over the world.
New Orleans music is a living culture. From the second lines to
Dixieland to Jazz to R&B and Funk, we are celebrating the
music and magic that is the heart of New Orleans. So join us
August 27th through September 2nd for a full week of Moving
Forward...It will move your feet and make you want to dance!
