As Hurricane Isaac continues to creep over the Gulf Coast and cause massive flooding, we can’t help but think of Katrina, and the devastation that storm left in her wake.

Last year, Virginia spoke with the author of a book that detailed an important part of that rebirth...music. Keith Spera is author of Groove Interrupted: Loss, Renewal, and the Music of New Orleans.
