THIS is New Orleans!

Most people outside of New Orleans have probably never heard of New Orleans Bounce music before. It's a type of rap with an electronic beat that causes one to want to do nothing except shake your booty (giving momentum to the rest of your body) as fast as possible. The music is played loud over a PA system, as a large black transvestite rap/sings over the beats.

In New Orleans, the queen of Bounce is none other than Big Freedia. She brings the wildest parties wherever she plays. If you have not gotten a chance to experience a bounce night, head down to Siberia (on St. Claude St.) for any of their bounce nights and embrace it. This is a must!

art/official plans to do a large spotlight on bounce music in the near future, so I will leave more details to come. Until then enjoy Big Freedia's debut music video for her track "Ya'll get back now!"
