Gumbo Ya Ya

$ 17.95

The living folklore of Louisiana returns in this new edition of the classic Gumbo Ya-Ya. Long considered the finest collection of Louisiana folk tales and customs, Gumbo Ya-Ya chronicles the stories and legends that have emerged from the bayou country. Meet the Krewe of Zulu, New Orleans' most colorful all-black Carnival club, and the many tribes of Indians who help celebrate Mardi Gras with their fierce pageantry. All aspects of society are detailed in this wonderful album of Louisiana tradition: the Vieux Carre Creoles, with their strict codes of family honor; the burly Irish Channel immigrants; the lively Italians who still honor St. Joseph and St. Rosalia with all the pomp of the Old Country; and the fun-loving Cajuns, with their curious family names and spirited fais do-do. Gumbo Ya-Ya ( Everybody Talks at Once ) is a charming look at the legends and practices of Louisiana, particularly New Orleans.
