If you walk the banks of the Mississippi River in New Orleans, chances are you will meet Robert (or Sam, depending his mood determines his name that day). He will gladly play you a “happy beat”.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture

New Orleans..There is a thread of music that floats along every street corner.. It is unavoidable and so ingrained in the culture here, it becomes a part of every person that walks those streets.

I encountered these fine musicians on my visit this week:

Royce from the New Creations Brass Band played for me as I walked through Treme
