Ever Read A New Orleans Culture Magazine? Well now is your chance…

The Barbarin magazine is a New Orleans culture magazine in dedication to the late Louis Barbarin, my great grandfather who was a famous jazz musician in the south. He was a drummer, therefore I decided to use him s the legend of the magazine, so basically he started it and I will finish it! Another reason why I chose to name my magazine the Barbarin is because it is a New Orleans culture magazine and I didn’t want to give it a cliche’ title, such as Gumbo or Treme’. This magazine consists of all the culture of Nola, such as the food, fashion, festivals, seasons, events, places and landmarks, and most importantly, the natives.

What makes my New Orleans culture magazine different from others is that I live it. Meaning that I attend the “Second Lines” on Sunday’s, I eat crawfish on the lakefront (Lake Ponchartrain), I have picnics in City Park (Nola’s most common park), and I participate in everything that my city has to offer. I’ve been in the slums and the suburbs of New Orleans and on top of that, I’m a native! Therefore, I did not just research the city and decided to do this, I live by, die by New Orleans.
