In our new series, we look at eight cities where live music has exploded — from legendary hubs like Chicago and Nashville, to rising hot spots like Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Portland, Maine. The latest? New Orleans , where Bourbon Street is only the beginning. Live music is thriving in the city beyond Bourbon Street, from the steadily growing number of clubs on Frenchmen Street to unlikely, one-of-a-kind venues like Music Box Village, where artists including Norah Jones and bounce legend Big Freedia have played among a backyard full of ramshackle sonic art projects. Any given night in NOLA you can catch traditional jazz, zydeco, swamp pop, funk, rap, and bounce — sometimes on the same bill. The rich gumbo of genres has birthed hard-to-define stars like Tank and the Bangas , who were nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy. Now, both locals and tourists bop between around 15 different spots.

The Blue Nile
T he harmonic combination of the music, the architecture, the lush garden boxes billowing from the balconies, the food, the exuberant joy of living, the people…. New Orleans , founded in , has been enchanting people with her magic touch for nearly years, and the love affair continues to beat strong. The city overflows with joie de vivre , a French phrase to describe the joy of living. One evening while researching I stumbled upon the Soniat House , a room boutique hotel in the heart of the French Quarter. It exudes grace, classic and refined luxury, European charm and Southern hospitality. I could hardly wait to check in. After the taxi dropped me off, I noticed a simple doorbell beside the large double doors guarding the entrance. The doors immediately reminded me of the apartment I lived in one summer while studying fashion design in Florence. Each pair of doors provided a gateway to something magical on the inside, whether it be a staircase, courtyard or the interior of a private home. The doors of Soniat House open onto a lush courtyard with hints of magnolia and the dew of the summer day.
The music of New Orleans assumes various styles of music which have often borrowed from earlier traditions. New Orleans , Louisiana , is especially known for its strong association with jazz music , universally considered to be the birthplace of the genre. The earliest form was dixieland , which has sometimes been called traditional jazz , 'New Orleans', and 'New Orleans jazz'. However, the tradition of jazz in New Orleans has taken on various forms that have either branched out from original dixieland or taken entirely different paths altogether. New Orleans has also been a prominent center of funk , home to some of the earliest funk bands such as The Meters. The African influence on New Orleans music can trace its roots at least back to Congo Square in New Orleans in , when slaves would congregate there to play music and dance on Sundays. African music was played as well as local music, including that of local white composers, such as Louis Moreau Gottschalk. Along with European musical forms that were popular in the city, including the brass band traditions, the cultural mix laid the groundwork for the New Orleans musical art forms to come. By , the local paper—the daily Picayune —ran a scathing article complaining about the emergence of brass bands in the city, which it stated could be found on every corner. The term "jazz" early on often spelled "jass" did not become popular until the mid and late s, when New Orleans musicians first rose to prominence in other parts of the USA and the New Orleans style needed a new name to differentiate it from the nationally popular ragtime.
