Celebrating Creole: The Neighborhood Story Project Brings Creole Language and History to Life with Holiday Dinner, Concert and Francis X. Pavy Art Exhibit Dec. 8
It's not an easy thing to save a language. But New Orleans musician Bruce "Sunpie" Barnes and University of New Orleans anthropologist Rachel Breunlin of The Neighborhood Story Project are giving it their best shot. For the last three years, the pair have been collaborating with Lafayette musician Leroy Etienne, L'Union Creole and the New Orleans Jazz National Historic Park on a project called Le Kér Creole (translated "The Creole Heart"), a forthcoming CD and book that together aim to preserve and repatriate Creole language, history and music in a city that has tended to forget it. The project includes new, original compositions by Barnes and Etienne as well as some historic pieces, all of which are transcribed in their original language and translated into English. On Friday, Dec. 8, The Neighborhood Story Project hosts a free live jazz concert and art show at its headquarters, 2202 Lapeyrouse St, in celebration of Le Kér Creole and the stories and legacy that inspired it. The event, which will go from 6 to 9 p.m., will feature Don Vappie, Louis Ford and the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park's Arrowhead Jazz Band, as well as L'Union Creole.
