mvd8922br-new-orleans-music

When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, most of the city’s vibrant music scene was relocated. Even Voodoo Fest, long a New Orleans tradition, was held in Memphis Tennessee the next year.

Filmmaker Robert Mugge (Last of the Mississippi Jukes) set out to track down the transplanted New Orleans musicians and,through fortuitous circumstances was able to film performances of artists like Dr. John, Cyril Neville, and more – at Voodo Fest and, eventually, back in New orleans.

The result is New Orleans Music In Exile – a film that ‘examines what Hurricane Katrina and breached levees did to the city’s music community.’

New Orleans Music In Exile comes to Blu-ray on November 18th. Pre-orders are being taken now. For details, read on.
