article imageRhythms of New Orleans resonate in São Paulo, Brazil

Bourbon Street Festival is Brazil's most important event dedicated to the music of New Orleans. The festival takes place in the Moema neighborhood of São Paulo and is centered around the local jazz/funk/R&B club, Bourbon Street.
Since the festival's inception in 2003, it has featured dozens of bands from New Orleans, including many internationally very well known artists. This year's festivities last nine days and offer live music performed by eight different groups from the Crescent City. Aside of the club concerts, music will also be played on two outside stages, located in Parque do Ibirapuera and on Rua dos Chanés. These concerts are free to the public and attract thousands of Paulistas and visitors alike.
While the music styles will range from traditional jazz to zydeco to blues, the common denominator will be the rich musical traditions of New Orleans. The lineup includes Leroy Jones Quintet, Marcia Ball, Big Sam's Funky Nation, Joe Krown, Carol Fran, Glen David Andrews, Kurt Brunus Project, and Bruce "Sunpie" Barnes and the Sunspots.
