New Orleans 2019 Videos - Day 3

Today I started in the Blues Tent with traditional West African Mandingo music
from Diassing Kunda from Senegal

Next, some great modern Cajun music from Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys

The Louisiana Repertory Jazz Ensemble in Economy Hall

Listening to Tab Benoit while soaking up the Louisiana sunshine on the Acura Stage bleachers

Dwayne Dopsie, known as the Jimi Hendrix of the accordion, and the Zydeco Hellraisers

Mid-afternoon funky jazz from Karl Denson's Tiny Universe at Congo Square

In the Gospel Tent, Kathy Taylor and Favor

Heavy-duty blues rock from Alvin 'Youngblood' Hart and his Muscle Theory band

Always astounding modern jazz from Terence Blanchard and the E-Collective

Another side trip to the Gospel Tent. This is Arthur Clayton IV and Anointed for Purpose

Here's a really cool young brass band called Da Truth at the Jazz and Heritage Stage

Pastor Tyrone Jefferson in the Gospel Tent

Wendell Brunious and the New Orleans All Stars in Economy Hall. I had intended to end my day here
until Laurie sent a text telling me I had to get to the Acura Stage to see Santana ...

So I did, and I got Santana with Trombone Shorty! The drummer is Cindy Blackman Santana.
My video here is from the video board at the Acura Stage. 

Santana's show ran late, so we had an after-dark bus trip down Canal Street to the Sheraton
