New Orleans Culture: Treme Celebrates 200 Years

New Orleans culture Treme

Treme is an important neighborhood to New Orleans culture. This 1895 painting by Paul Poincy shows a typical scene.

The Treme neighborhood, the first black American neighborhood in the Untied States is an integral and important part of New Orleans culture.

Mardi Gras Indians were born here in the late part of the 10th century and many of the cities best musicians come from this faubourg.

It still has a tradition of producing great musical performers as well as being the foundational neighborhood for the development of Jazz.

So I guess it’s only fitting that after 200 years they have a celebration and in typical New Orleans style they are going to celebrate for an entire week! Hey yeah, cher! Here’s what Nola.com has to say about it.
