About Up From The Streets:

  1. 104 m. Michael Murphy. Eagle Rock Entertainment. US. English. NR.

New Orleans’s distinct history, which came about as a result of its political and social history, is examined through the lens of its music. There is a thread that runs through the city that can be heard from the drumming at Congo Square in the 1700’s through to today’s vibrant music scene. A powerful form of expression, the music of this city was a vehicle to communicate a desire for freedom, express frustration of the injustices of segregation and Jim Crow laws, a healing force that helped bring the city back from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, and is still a vital statement against ongoing cultural & racial biases. Executive Producer Terence Blanchard and Director Michael Murphy, show how the culture of New Orleans is reflected in its music, how music impacts culture; and how even in the darkest of times, music lifts and unites.

A portion of the proceeds from every ticket sold will be donated to The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation’s Jazz & Heritage Music Relief Fund, a statewide relief fund created to support Louisiana musicians and music industry workers whose livelihoods have been adversely impacted by this unprecedented crisis.
