Several weeks ago, we introduced readers to the Bloody Sunday Sessions, a music video series featuring artists performing on mule-drawn carriages through the streets of New Orleans. After sharing videos with the Wood Brothers and Taj Mahal, the BSS crew has done it again with beloved Latin funk/soul/hip-hop group, Ozomatli.
With six band members (and their instruments) sharing a single carriage, the Ozomatli crew performed their song “Ya Viene el Sol” for the fine folks of New Orleans’ Royal Street. Dig it below:
Sound engineer and producer, Eric Heigle, thought of the idea on his balcony, while living in the oldest apartment building in the United States. Watching the carriages pass by during breaks from a home studio recording session, it seemed only logical to put the two together. Add some Bloody Mary’s to the mix, and the rest is history in the making.
The video was filmed on May 17th, 2014 on Royal Street, in the French Quarter in New Orleans, LA. A big thanks to the whole Bloody Sunday Sessions crew, listed below:
