Iko Iko | Song Around The World (members only version)

About this Video

We're happy to share our Song Around The World version of the New Orleans classic and Mardi Gras favorite, "Iko Iko." This song features Dr. John in one of his last known recordings, along with the Grateful Dead's Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart and New Orleans' luminaries Ivan Neville, Donald Harrison, and George Porter, Jr. — taking you from the Congo to Congo Square.

This special supporters only version also features Drum Dialogue—a mini documentary that explores drums as not only the heartbeat of song but the heartbeat of communication throughout much of the world.
