Congo Square Rhythms Festival, presented by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, returns to Armstrong Park March 18-19, 2017. This is the 10th annual presentation of this deeply meaningful and vibrant (and free!) festival that celebrates the many traditions that trace back to Congo Square - including brass bands, Mardi Gras Indians and the music from Africa, the Caribbean, and the Gulf South.
In these days leading up to the festival, we'll be sharing video highlights captured last year by the WWOZ team. Today's feature is Chakra Dance Theatre's inspirational performance from the first day of the festival. Or check out the whole video collection here!
