New Orleans Music Tours share the stories of what makes New Orleans the most influential city in popular music. It could have only happened in a place where Creole French, Spanish and both free and enslaved Africans came together with foods, cultures and musics of their homelands.

The history of jazz and rock n roll intertwine with the drumming and dancing of slaves 250 years ago in Congo Square. During the same period masked balls, European music and opera were essential to Creole French society. No one story is complete without the other. It’s a fascinating story shared by professional tour guides for young and old, musicians and students. Through the stories and recordings you will be amazed at the songs you’ve enjoyed all of your life came directly from New Orleans.
