Drumsville: Evolution of the New Orleans beat

by The 100 Companies

The New Orleans Jazz Museum’s latest exhibit celebrates the development of the drum kit here in New Orleans as well as the ongoing evolution of our city’s rich drumming traditions. Drawing upon the museum’s unique archive, New Orleans drum legends are highlighted including Baby Dodds, Paul Barbarin, Earl Palmer and others, featuring equipment from their personal collections.

The related traditions of improvised percussion instruments are explored, testifying to the vibrancy of the city’s drumming culture. Enjoy learning about our unique beat from Nov. 8, 2018, through Jan. 31, 2019, from 10 am to 4:30 pm, Tuesday through Sunday.
