Our first episode is the genesis of "We Are One: Street Music of New Orleans." This documentary chronicles the historical movement and evolution of street music in the most talented city in the world. Over the past twenty-plus years, NO has emerged as the best kept secret of a culture that grew out of concrete. Since Soundscan began electronically tracking record sales in 1991, New Orleans acts have sold in excess of 120 million records. This number is astounding in the fact that at its peak, the city only held 500,000 residents in a concentrated area. The sprawling metropolises of New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago had there own successes, but per capita, there is no comparison. Whether it has been, rap, bounce, or the unique street brass sub-culture, New Orleans has always managed to be self-sustaining due to a creative and entrepreneurial spirit of the people. Over the near future, legendary artists, producers, musicians, and industry insiders from NO will be joining us to discuss their contributions and why New Orleans owes no apology for always doing things their way.
Join Nathan T Rideaux of Urban Science Films, and guest Co-Host, Charlie Vaughn of Uptown Artwerks as we start go down the road that mainstream media has neglected. "We Are One: Street Music of New Orleans."
It's good to talk.
