Sunday, the streets of New Orleans are filled with the sounds and stomps of the Second Line Parade Brass Band as it marches with it’s many diverse followers.
Some say that second lining originated from traditional West African circle dances, children would form a periphery circle outside the main circle of adult dancers. The first slaves are said to have brought the dances to New Orleans where the marches became incorporated into processions, such as funerals, forcing the ring to straighten into a line.
This round about religious gathering happens for many reasons now, but above all, they are a beacon of unity amongst all people, whether you worship the past and present spirit of Jazz Music or not.
Everyone is welcome to join in the March through some of the lesser known streets of this musically colourful city.
You Play, You Eat, You Stamp Your Feet – if only life could be this simple!
