Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Learn about the great musical legends of New Orleans then and now: from Jelly Roll Morton, to Mahalia Jackson, to Fats Domino, to Trombone Shorty, and the Marsalis family. Gain a greater understanding of the different musical genres that make this city and nation great: from the music of slavery, to traditional jazz, to the industrial rock of the 1990’s!

    If that isn’t enough enjoy your walk through one of, if not the oldest, African American neighborhoods in the United States - the Treme, made famous after Katrina by the television series of the same name. You will learn some of the history of this incredible neighborhood and the role it has played in New Orleans for almost 300 years. As one of the most beautiful, historic, and important neighborhoods in the history of the United States, Treme is the birthplace of many famous musicians and a great center of culture and life in our city, so this is almost like getting two tours in one!

    Miss Malika is indeed a master story teller. Her passion of New Orleans music and culture was so evident. She makes you want to research the people she talked about and download their music.
