Join folk-rock musician Ani DiFranco in a four part film series filmed live along the Mississippi River, highlighting the richness and vitality of American music at the close of the 20th century. This fourth segment covers music from from Natchez, Mississippi to Delacroix Island in the Gulf of Mexico. In the bayous of Louisiana, country and blues come together with French styles, creating the potent dance rhythms of Cajun and zydeco. The streets of New Orleans resound with the rhumba-influenced rhythm and blues and generations of jazz horns.
