To celebrate the last Music Monday before the conference begins, we’re highlighting New Orleans’ funkiest party band, Galactic. While they may tour all over the country, they’re best known for their local shows – particularly their Lundi Gras (the day before Mardi Gras) set at Tipitina’s, for which tickets sell out quickly. Galactic has collaborated with many local and national musicians, and their most recent album, Carnivale Electricos, is something of a musical homage to all the various sounds and rituals associated with Carnival. The first track embedded below is off that album.
