"We Are One: Street Music of New Orleans" DVD Review


Just a month ago I received in my home this new DVD dedicated to the streets and black music of New Orleans. "We Are One: Street Music of New Orleans" is the debut film of Urban Science Films. I wanna thank the creators about this special project because not everyday you can watch a treasure like this. The whole film chronicles the special history of the rap music in one of the most special city in United States; New Orleans.

From the streets of Uptown, Downtown, and the Westbank you can taste a city that you never will find another more more culturally than New Orleans. Directed by Nathan T. Rideaux you can watch many artists in the dvd including the legendary producers Ice Mike, BlaQ N Mild and groups like Partners N Crime or Black Menace. The interviews are very good specially with Mr. Serv On, Sess 4-5 or Bust Down talking about the history of the hip-hop begginings in the city. Another surprise of the DVD is the appeareances by Youngfellz Brass Band and The Original Pinettes Brass Band. Like the creators said it is a story that can be told by someone who lived it.

Definitely if you love the hip hop scene from New Orleans and the documentaries, you must buy this one. From a underground background, Urban Science Films shows a history in an hour and 20 minutes.
