Mardi Gras Indians

By Valerie Milano

Los Angeles, CA (Hollywood Today) 1/25/14 – “I am happy to be here in Los Angeles celebrating the State of Louisiana’s 12 Grammy Nominations.” Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne (pronounced DAR DEN) said to Hollywood Today at LA Live Courtyard as he, and others from the State of Louisiana tourist board, gathered to walk with “The Wild Magnolias” as they performed some great Mardi Gras music in preparation for their annual “Only in Louisiana” brunch being held tomorrow afternoon at the Conga Room at LA Live. The Wild Magnolias are a funk band from New Orleans, Louisiana, that participate in the local “Indian Masking” traditions and perform Mardi Gras music. Mardi Gras Indians are actually African-American performers in New Orleans, who dress up for Mardi Gras in suits influenced by Native American ceremonial apparel. They were dressed today in blue, yellow and purple and white. The three band members are: Theodore “Bo” Dollis (vocals); Norwood Johnson (percussion) and Gerald “Little Bo” Dollis (vocals). Bo even wore a ceremonial head-dress of blue feathers and had no trouble walking and playing his tambourine, they all were having such a great time. You can find a great deal of interesting history about the band, plus singles they have released, albums, and even international albums, which can be found at wildmagnolias.net.
