New Orleans

The Wild Tchoupitoulas gonna stomp some rump


If you really want to learn something about New Orleans music, subscribe / bookmark Dan’s Home of the Groove, the music blog about New Orleans music. Going along with the Mardi Gras Indians theme from the previous Iko Iko post, listen to this great Wild Tchoupitoulas song.


Helped out by members of the Meters and the Neville Brothers, and produced by Allen Toussaint, the Tchoups release their self-titled – and only – album, in 1976. For a more thorough background of this song and the Mardi Gras Indian culture, see this great post from Home of the Groove.

    I’ve bookmarked Home of the Groove a long time ago…I’m from Dan’s town and yet I learn something new about the music of my homeland everytime he posts an article. I heartily second your recommendation!
