The Pelican State and music are inseparable. Discover it on an Escorted Tour through Louisiana
It’s been said that music feeds the soul, and nowhere is that more true than in Louisiana. It’s countless talented musicians have written or performed songs that will forever be part of the American soundtrack.
From Louis Armstrong to Harry Connick Jnr., Louisiana has one of the most diverse and vibrant music heritage. It crosses genres and has produced unforgettable music for decades. The southern region of the state is the birthplace of traditional creole and zydeco music, originating with slave songs. Later those melodies and rhythms were incorporated into more instrumental, contemporary sounds. Northern Louisiana is probably most famous for its contemporary country music superstars and the radio program “Louisiana Hayride.” The “Hayride” is widely viewed as a predecessor to The Grand Ole Opry.
Of course, New Orleans – “The Big Easy”, has a musical identity of its own, and it is responsible for the Dixieland jazz and a form of the blues known for its Caribbean influences.
And one of the best parts of Louisiana music – you can find it everywhere! From the main stage of a major music festival or a classic concert hall. From Cajun restaurants and street performers, the sounds of Louisiana are around every corner.
Now is the time to come and discover all the wonders of the Pelican State.
