Inside the Arts: Literary Festival Celebrates Tennessee Williams, & New World Music In Congo Square

Mar 18, 2014

This week on Inside the Arts we celebrate Tennessee Williams' 103rd Anniversary! The 28th Annual Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival kicks off five days of festivities in and around the French Quarter, beginning on Wednesday. We highlight an exciting array of theatrical offerings.

Then, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation gears up for the Congo Square New World Rhythms Festival, celebrating the music and culture of the African diaspora. We are treated to a mini-concert as Jonah Tobias of Buku Broux stops by WWNO's studios with his homemade electric bass Kora.

Airs Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. and Thursdays at 8:35 a.m.
