'If the musicians ain't got a chance to live, then what chance has the music got?' Dr John. This is a beautifully crafted, feature documentary, rich with colourful characters, and set in the iconic musical backdrop of New Orleans. In 2005 the music stopped, when one of the most deadly and destructive hurricanes in American history struck. The flood defences failed flooding the Crescent City for weeks. Lives were lost and shattered. Many displaced musicians felt compelled to return to the chaos and bleak confusion to play again. This is the story of some who made it back, told in their own words, with those who fought alongside to resuscitate the music scene; In particular the founders of The New Orleans Musicians' Clinic, a unique medical facility with the motto, 'Keeping the music alive'. Written by Renee Edwards

Genuinely inspiring and beautifully filmed
23 April 2018 | by roblordSee all my reviews

Wonderful heartfelt film making by director Renée Edwards and what an incredible story and collection of such charismatic individuals she has gathered in her film. I was very moved by it. I plan to visit New Orleans later this year and I really feel like this film has given me a brilliant introduction to the spirit of the city and its musical heritage. Highly recommended.
