* Mardi Gras Indians, traditionally the Mardi Gras Indians parade every Fat Tuesday (as well as other notable New Orleans holidays) to commemorate the victories of the Buffalo Soliders.

Today is the day that most New Orleanians live for…it’s Mardi Gras! Being a native New Orleanian, Mardi Gras is one of my favorite holidays and I look forward to it every year. It’s the one holiday a year where you can eat & drink as much as you want, and dance obnoxiously in the middle of the street and not a thing will be said. There is just a spirit that fills the city during this time that is unlike any other. In honor of Fat Tuesday, I’ve decided to put together a carnival inspired playlist that even if you’re miles away from New Orleans, will make you feel like you are standing on Bourbon St. Check it out below!

1. “Do Whatcha Wanna” x Rebirth Brass Band

2. “Iko, Iko” x The Dixie Cups

3. “Carnival Time” x Al Johnson

4. “Hey Pocky A-Way” x The Meters

5. “Roll With Me, Knock With Me” x Lil Rascals Brass Band

6. “New Second Line (The Mardi Gras Song)” x Dave Bartholomew & The Maryland Jazz Band

7. “I Ate Up The Apple Tree” x Pin Stripe Brass Band

8. “Mardi Gras Mambo” x The Hawkettes

Have a Happy Mardi Gras Everyone!
