TRIVIA New Orleans and Mardi Gras are often associated with this type of music: jazz French folk songs opera
TRIVIA ANSWER New Orleans and Mardi Gras are often associated with this type of music: jazz Around 1900 in New Orleans there was increasing interaction between poor black musicians, whose drum playing was influenced by African musical styles, and mixed-race Creoles, who were trained in European classical music. The fusion of the various traditions created jazz, which soon spread up the Mississippi River to Memphis and Chicago, and across the country to Harlem, New York. Today many marching bands play New Orleans jazz, or Dixieland, when they march through the city during Mardi Gras.
