Biography

The Wild Tchoupitoulas, a group of Mardi Gras Indians formed in the early 1970’s by George Landry, joined with New Orleans funk band, The Meters and recorded an album, featuring the “call-and-response” style chants typical of Mardi Gras Indians. Vocals were provided by Landry, as “Big Chief Jolly”, as well as other members of his Mardi Gras tribe.

Backing band was provided in part by members of the Meters. The album also features Landry’s nephews, the Neville Brothers, providing harmonies and some instrumentation.

The album was produced by famed New Orleans composer / songwriter / musician and record producer Allen Toussaint.
