The Congo Square Project is a volunteer organization dedicated to help New Orleans musicians in need via 6 albums/CD’s that trace the origin and development of the music that was brewed in the heart of the Crescent City. Some of the greatest talents in the world have donated their time and efforts to contribute and support the cradle of modern music. Threadhead Records is proud to help Mr. Fabian Jolivet get this music out to the world. Proceeds from the 4 recordings will benefit the New Orleans Musicians Clinic, the Congo Square Drummers Foundation, The Reverend Lois Dejean’s Youth Assistance Foundation and the Mardi Gras Indians Foundation.
The Congo Square Project contains a wealth of music. Starting in July 2010, and for each of 3-5 months thereafter, this website will release one CD per month from The Congo Square Project for download.
