New Orleans All The Way Live: New Orleans Sacred Music Festival

Each week on New Orleans All The Way Live, we take you into the world of New Orleans music, food, culture, and tradition through live performance and interviews with the special people that make up our diverse city.

This week New Orleans All the Way Live presents an hour of cross-cultural meet ups. We interview Rising Appalachia live in studio, as the band performs everything from Southern spirituals to Bulgarian music. In the second half of the program, Ensemble Fatien performs a set of music bridging New Orleans and West Africa. We also stop by an Arts Market and preview the upcoming New Orleans Sacred Music Festival, taking place on Saturday, March 15th, at the New Orleans Healing Center.

This week, we’ve also included a Web Extra for our New Orleans All the Way Live online fans! Sean Johnson sings “Sita Ram” while playing the Harmonium.  Recorded live by George Ingmire at Wild Lotus Yoga Studios.  Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band will be performing at the New Orleans Sacred Music Festival.
