David Kunian, curator of the New Orleans Jazz Museum, is without a doubt a champion of New Orleans music and culture. He has produced radio for more than 20 years and produced 10 documentaries about New Orleans artists. He has also had a weekly show on WWOZ since 1993.
“The music is the best combination of art and fun, and I continually hear new things and connections in it,” Kunian says. “I’ve been writing about it, documenting it and playing it on the radio since before I arrived in New Orleans in the last century. To paraphrase George Clinton, ‘The music is its own reward.’ One can go deeper and deeper into it, and it reveals more about us as a people and a spirit. The people who made it and were/are involved in it are wild and legendary. And there is still so much more research to be done in New Orleans music and roots music in general.”
David Kunian will join us and describe the New Orleans of Louis Armstrong's time, and show what exists now for these sacred places.
