Music of Mardi Gras

NoDef's Annual Carnival Playlist



Fat Tuesday is upon us! The hours are slipping away before New Orleanians must once again pack their favorite Carnival albums and wait a year. If you don't feel like strolling down Bourbon St. in the interim, NoDef has put together a playlist for you with all the classics from Dr. John and Professor Longhair to Al "Carnival Time" Johnson. Very few cities have music for every season, and none have better music in any season than New Orleans.
