New Orleans is one of the country’s richest sources of traditional music, a city which pioneered jazz and the blues. From creators/executive producers David Simon and Eric Overmyer (HBO’s The Wire®), the critically-acclaimed HBO® series Treme® interweaves stories of musicians and other residents who are trying to rebuild their lives while also preserving the city’s unique musical heritage and cultural traditions after Hurricane Katrina.
