Rank #2: "The Mexican Band"

Podcast cover
Read more
TriPod: New Orleans at 300 returns with a new episode about a Mexican band that rocked the city in the 80s -- the 1880s. Long, long ago, a band in New Orleans swept the city off its feet, but it wasn’t a New Orleans Band. It was Mexican. There's this sort of mythical thing...it's like this band comes to New Orleans from Mexico and they've got military brass instruments and it gets pinpointed as the beginning of something, which is really interesting. Interesting because nearly a hundred and 50 years have gone by, and jazz musicians like my friend Byron Asher, are still talking about this one band. I mean, it's kind of like a legend,” Asher said. It’s 1884, and New Orleans is celebrating an anniversary, not the tricentennial. The one hundredth anniversary of the first shipment of U.S. cotton to Europe which went to London in 1784. Eric Seiferth is a historian at the Historic New Orleans Collection. He says, back then, New Orleans is hosting The World's Industrial and Cotton Centennial

You’ve probably heard of the James Beard Awarding-winning Duong Phuong Bakery out in New Orleans East, whether or not you actually got to taste their coveted King Cake. But today, high school students from Metairie Park Country Day take over TriPod to go beyond Duong Phong, and explore the larger Vietnamese community in the East. Not long after we celebrated New Years Eve 2018, an entire community in New Orleans East celebrated their new years eve. It’s called Tet. Tet is the Vietnamese New Year, and there’s a weekend long festival with food, music, dancing, and some of the loudest fireworks you’ll ever hear. Tet was our introduction to the New Orleans Vietnamese community in New Orleans East. Believe it or not, before this experience, we didn’t know this community existed. Yeah, one of us, Halley Phan, is Vietnamese and just moved here from Vietnam last year. Even she didn’t know about the community. To be honest: our teacher told us about it. This made us really curious to learn more

I crashed an opera rehearsal the other day. A large group of vocalists, young, old, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, all the genders, belted out in long rows surrounding a piano. They were preparing for the 75th anniversary celebration of the New Orleans Opera Association. I was there to talk to a mother-daughter opera combo: Givonna Joseph and Aria Mason. “When she was little people would always say ‘Are you going to sing like your mom?’” Givonna told me. “It would drive her crazy. ‘Im so tired, no, I’m not gonna sing… And I said, ‘you’re going to be who you’re supposed to be. I’m not going to tell you what you are going to do.’ And at some point the bug bit her and by the time she got to college, all of a sudden she says ‘I’m going to major in voice.’ What?!” She did name her daughter Aria. “I did,” she confirms. “I took a chance. She could have been tone deaf. That wouldn’t have worked out so well.” Givonna’s been performing since she was a child. She was often the only black girl in
