Новый Орелан - New Orleans

 New Orleans is the old capital of Louisiana. The Spanish first arrived in Louisiana in the 16th century, and a century later it was taken over by the French. Then, for a while, it again belonged to Spain, and finally, in 1803, it was sold to the American government.
 
Creoles and jazz
 
The Louisiana Creoles are of Afro- French origin and are one of the ethnic groups who created New Orleans’ culture. They influenced jazz music, which was a combination of ragtime and blues and based on collective, rather than solo, improvisation. The French Quarter, the famous New Orleans district, is the world centre of jazz music, where famous artists such as Louis Armstrong started their careers.
 
Mardi Gras
 
Mardi Gras is the most famous of New Orleans’ street parades. It is a part of the carnival, lasting from the 6th January until midnight on Mardi Gras, which is the day before Ash Wednesday. On this day you can dress up as you wish and you should, according to the rules of the parade, “forget your problems and have fun”.
