Mimi’s in the Marigny, Franklin Ave, New Orleans, USA, 10th November 2014.
We turned up at Mimi’s on the Marigny because as a cajun and creole local tapas restaurant it sounded worth checking out. Not knowing how crowded it might be we turned up early and out timing worked out to be perfect. We didn’t even know a band was playing and we got the table right in front. The food was great and the band was great.
This is G String Orchestra, especially the three players to the right, the bass accordion and violin. It can range from a two-piece to a ten-piece band, playing traditional and original eastern European folk and klezmer music or more specifically, pan-Balkan music ranging from romantic waltzes to driving coceks, pulsing horas to foot moving bulgars, heart wrenching greek rembetica ballads to the hungarian czardas!.
