Got the golden band....

While there are plenty of Mardi Gras Indian clips on you tube, this one shows better than most what's actually going on when the "tribes" meet.

Below are links to the two earliest known authentic Indian recordings. They were released on an album called "The Music Of New Orleans: The Music Of Mardi Gras" in the late '50s, although I think there's a good possibility that they were recorded a few years earlier. Sam Charters made the recording.
