This all-star performance is a convergence of New Orleans cultural heavyweights. Crescent City musical veterans the New Orleans Suspects, alongside a guest appearance from vocalist Erica Falls, set the musical tone for a vibrant set that will feature New Orleans Indians Big Chief Juan Pardo & The Golden Comanche.
When The New Orleans Suspects and the Golden Comanche unite, they’re known as Tribal Gold. A convergence in the works for a decade, their pairing is meant to highlight New Orleans culture, music and the Mardi Gras Indian heritage.
Noted as the “new queen of New Orleans Neo-Soul,” vocalist and songwriter Erica Falls credits her unique vintage sound to her childhood growing up in New Orleans’ 9th Ward, where her parents introduced her to Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughn, and Whitney Houston.
