Mardi Gras Indian group from New Orleans lead by Wilson Turbinton AKA Willie Tee. Every year for carnival time they make a new Indian suit and that's what this song is all about.



Mink DeVille [as Italian Shoes without credit]

You don't turn a New Orleans Indian group's new suit into Italian shoes without being banned for years at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and that's exactly what happened. As a first step in a long reconciliation process, Willy came to live in New Orleans, cut a whole album there entitled New Orleans with nothing but New Orleans musicians and nothing but New Orleans music.
