Saints & Spirits
Explore the spiritual realm of New Orleans and South Louisiana through words and music on this weekend of All Souls' and All Saints'. Our very own, Ninth-ward, R & B buddha, Fats Domino, drops by and unveils his personal spirituality. Visit the tomb of Voodoo queen Marie Laveau with author, anthropologist and believer Martha Ward. Plus, Creole artist, musician and traiteur Dennis Paul Williams discusses the mystical power of the zydeco and his own healing practices. And Meter man Charles Neville runs the old-school, uptown Voodoo down.
