This week’s program brings you the blues, inflections of West Africa, as well as a moment of Gospel, with music by Marcia Ball, Toubab Krewe, the Johnny Vidacovich Trio, the late Tommy Ridgely and others. All these voices come together as we prepare for a visit to the Congo Square New World Rhythms Festival. We talk about the festival and the significance of Congo Square with Scott Aiges from the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation.
