Congo Square – 09/24/2010

Episode 24
Congo Square was the only place in America where African slaves were allowed to market goods, socialize, and participate in drumming, music making, and dance in the 1700s-1800s, establishing the roots of American music. Although the historic use of the site predates jazz, it is significant because of the role the square played in New Orleans’ musical heritage and as a symbol of the early African-American contributions to the origins of jazz and other musical forms. Hi, I’m Jeff Duperon your host for a three hour journey of musical delights showcasing the music of New Orleans and the surrounding Region. Welcome…to Congo Square on listener-supported…taintradio.
