Description
Two hundred years before the HBO television series made Tremé an emblem of the cultural richness of New Orleans, the residents of the faubourg Tremé drummed, danced, and second lined their way into history. The oldest African American neighborhood in the United States as well as the birthplace of jazz, Tremé boasts a history of civil rights activism and jazz rhythms that still inspires.

From Congo Square to Brass Band Heaven and the Tomb of the Unknown Slave, the Faubourg Tremé will get under your skin. The tour is ready whenever you feel like “Walking the Tremé.” With your smart phone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place.
