One thought on “International Musicians Join Forces to Support The New Orleans Musicians Clinic”

  1. I am a participant on, Vol.1 of the ; “Sacred Ground” album for the CONGO SQUARE PROJECT. Globally speaking, it is one of the most significant VOLUNTEER efforts
    in existence. It is crucial that the world knows that New Orleans was the : “GOLDEN
    UTERUS” for music that now crosses all of Man’s geographic and cultural borders.
    America’s most powerful export is it’s Culture and the magic of it’s music can transform
    the hearts of people around the world after hearing just one of the songs that we owe
    to Congo Square. Fabian Jolivet and Threadhead Records deserve our everlasting
    gratitude for their committment to the Congo Square Project. I’d also like to give much love and heartfelt thanks to my mentor and “Living Legend” : John Boudreaux and a special
    thanks goes out to : Nathan Chasing Horse, a direct descendant of ; Crazy Horse
    who (at the session) blessed the; “Seminole Maroon Peace Belts”. Phil Wilkes Fixico,
    Seminole Maroon Descendant and “Seminole Maroon Peace Belt” : Creator.
