Rejuvenation: The Synergy of Black Masking Indians and New Orleans Music


Featuring Melissa A. Weber

Through sound recordings, archival collection photographs, lecture, and group discussion, learn how the 100+ year tradition of Black Masking Indians/Mardi Gras Indians in New Orleans connected with local musicians to create a new style of New Orleans funk music and Mardi Gras Indian music making in the 1970s.

This session will be led by by Melissa A. Weber, curator of the Hogan Archive of New Orleans Music and New Orleans Jazz, a division of Tulane University Special Collections.
