From Louis Armstrong to James Booker, jazz and blues to rock and roll, New Orleans is known the world over for its phenomenal musicians and vibrant music scene. Though one city contains all this musical virtuosity, it does not exist in a bubble. Up From the Streets offers a comprehensive look into the history of New Orleans music and its extensive influence around the world. With Afro-Caribbean influence to Mardi Gras Indians and Second Line parades, New Orleans is home to a unique mesh of cultures. Through interviews, performances, and street footage, this film celebrates life through the universal language of music. New Orleans music may come from the streets, but where it takes you is boundless. (New Orleans Film Society)
