Description

Spyboys sing "Too-Way-Pa-Ka-Way" and have a mock face-off at the 66th Annual Zulu Parade. Shot by Alan Lomax and crew, New Orleans, May 1982.

***

From 1978 to 1985, Lomax travelled throughout the South collecting recordings in five culture regions — Mississippi Delta and Hill Country, Central and Southern Appalachia, New Orleans, Cajun Louisiana, and Johns Island, S.C. — compiling footage for what would become his "American Patchwork" series of PBS. This clip is drawn from the New Orleans collection. For more about this and the other American Patchwork collections, visit the Alan Lomax Archive's YouTube channel
