    Our founder, Givonna Joseph, and singer Aria Mason (mother and daughter) were featured on this documentary that aired in France on Feb. 19, 2014. This episode of "Le Grand Tour" is about France's connections to Quebec and Louisiana... At St. Augustine Church, in the Treme, where their ancestors worshipped, they sang the Ave Maria in individual verses in Créole- as Ms. Joseph's great grandmother used to pray. But they only show the final part in latin. They were glad to tell a different story about Créoles and Opera in 19th Century New Orleans in the interviews. You may see more clips on their website at www.legrandtour.fr

NolaVie gets up-close and personal with local notables in this new series of back-seat video interviews sponsored by TaxiCabApp. Ride along and eavesdrop as New Orleanians talk about the city they love and reveal its secrets. For our first set of Cab Rides, we rode shotgun with personalities drawn from the city?s music scene.

The movie's lovely audio of Belle Nuit from Tales of Hoffman is sung by Givonna and her daughter, Aria Mason, co-founder of OperaCreole.
