Synopsis

On August 29th of 2005, hurricane winds, torrential rains and a series of failed levees decimated The Big Easy and virtually destroyed one of the most unique music cultures in the world. In the weeks and months immediately following the Katrina disaster, filmmaker Robert Mugge captured the shock, sorrow and courage of the city's remarkable musicians as they struggled to return to their homes, rebuild their careers, and revive their devastated community. Experience the heart and soul of a rhythm that refused to die, featuring New Orleans' own Dr. John, Marcia Ball, Cyril Neville, The Iguanas, Eddie Bo, Kermit Ruffins, Irma Thomas, Cowboy Mouth, Theresa Andersson, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, The ReBirth Brass Band and many more.
