New this year: A vegan gumbo contest with celebrity judges (there will be plenty of regular gumbo, too), a special appearance by the LadyFest YeMaYa parade and a "shake your tail feather" dance contest of female dance groups.
All that plus a huge arts market and a constellation of the city's best brass bands.
New Orleans Ballet Association (NOBA) and The NOCCA Institute co-present India’s foremost Kathak dance master, Pandit Chitresh Das, and Emmy award-winning tap star, Jason Samuels Smith, in India Jazz Suites, a unique East-meets-West dance and music event.
India Jazz Suites is a phenomenal partnership between Das and Smith, with live musical accompaniment from three classical Indian musicians and a stellar jazz trio that drives this program. The performance celebrates the stars’ classical Indian Kathak and American-based tap dance styles, and the blending of the two in a blast of incredible speed and power, grace and beauty, epic storytelling and the pure joy of dance.
