Partis pour la gloire à La Nouvelle-Orléans !: Nous sommes les opossums musiciens (Hardcover)
Mama and Papa Poss continue their musical odyssey, taking a boat down the Mississippi River to the heart of New Orleans. Along the way, they meet up with a famous feline trumpet player, aptly named Louis Chatstrong, who invites them to his favorite club in the heart of the French Quarter. After sharing the stage all night with a band of cool-looking cats, they decide to get married and set off for their honeymoon on a streetcar named Desire! Take a trip to the Big Easy in this funny, light-hearted tale that pays homage to the city that invented jazz! “Partis pour la gloire à La Nouvelle-Orléans!” is the second story in the “Nous sommes les opossums musiciens” series, which follows Mama and Papa Poss on their travels that bring them across North America to the birthplaces of Cajun, jazz, country, rock’n’rol., blues, and traditional Quebecois music. At the end of each story, explanatory notes delve into the key figures, instruments and customs behind each genre. A QR code in the book allows you to access all major streaming plaforms to listen to the narrated story in French and two songs (the original track “Chat de ruelle” and the classic “Oh, When the Saints”).
