New Orleans Folkloric is a group of New Orleans born drummers, singers and dancers preserving New Orleans street rhythms, dance and song style. We continue the legacy that ended in Congo Square of coming together to elevate the spirit. Even though drumming was eventually banned, the rhythms live on through the people. We use different acoustic instruments, some of which we have made with the intent to capture the spirit of the land.
