Private Nola Culture: Second Line Music Tour

New Orleans

The processions aren’t associated with any specific event, holiday or celebration; instead, they are usually conducted simply for the joy of it. The origins of second lines can be traced back to the 19th century, to the community and fraternal groups that offered collective insurance and funeral services, particularly in the African American community. - RESERVE THIS EXPERIENCE!!!

So worth it!!! - This was the best experience, I didn’t know I was gonna enjoy it as much as I did! Our tour guide Hollis is a true King of the community and shared the deep cultural background with us and immersed us in the parade making it a true cultural experience! And the vendors he introduced us to were also a treat from the healing fruit drinks to the yummy soul food at the Assassin restaurant. I’m so glad I had the experience!!!!
