Congo Square, Jazz, and Treme Tour
Join Our Sacred Stories for a one -of- a kind walking tour experience. Our Afro-Creole Music Treme Tour will give you an inside look at the history, traditions of this unique and living culture. Our tour includes:
From Slavery to Freedom, Jazz to Jambalaya Congo Square to Gris Gris. Walk through a lesson in Architecture and the hidden African symbols all around you. Let’s talk Jazz to Jambalaya and the accomplishments of Free People of Color and the building of Treme. Marie Laveau’s Voodoo and Hoodoo, and it’ rites, rituals, Gris Gris, Catholicism and how to work the saints. Dance the Second line to Dixieland Jazz and how it was formed and how it spread throughout the world. We will explore Mardi Gras Indians chants along with African call and response songs to get a better understanding of how music developed in this closely knit Gumbo community. Our roots are Indigenous, French, Spanish and African and every one of these groups forges the identity of this beloved city.
