789-Voo Doo – New Orleans, LA

One of the cultural events at Jazz Fest are the Haitian voodoo drummers and priests. Voodoo is not what you think. It is a cultural tradition and Christian religion for persons from Haiti. The drummers beat out great captivating beats while the priestesses dance. They then present a short workshop ceremony for the tourists.
