NEW ORLEANS - The vibrant sounds of brass bands and buskers echo through the streets of New Orleans ten years after the birthplace of jazz was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. But while tourists may find themselves overwhelmed by choice, locals fear some of the Big Easy’s spirit of creativity and improvisation may have been lost to the floodwaters. “There had been a long line of older musicians passing a culture on to younger musicians,” guitarist Jonathan Frelich told AFP. “That got uprooted, and the way the city decided to invest in culture didn’t have much to do with the way that it had existed before.”
