Video Du Jour: Meschiya Lake and Her Little Big Horns
The Carnival season has begun in New Orleans, it increases in intensity until it culminates with the big Mardi Gras – Fat Tuesday event next month. To get you in the mood, today we have Meschiya Lake and Her Little Big Horns from the Crescent City.
The multi-tattooed Meschiya may look über-modern but her sound is anything but: she has been highly instrumental in helping preserve the “classic” New Orleans jazz sound. Check out this clip, filmed in 2009 on Royal Street in the French Quarter, complete with a timely screech of brakes. Only in New Orleans.
