Gulf Coast Music

GULF COAST MUSIC | an regional music education program

At the epicenter of Southern culture is the music that originated in Gulf Coast port cities like New Orleans and Galveston. In the future we will produce short educational features on compact disc to be used by community and college radio stations. This service will help inform listeners about musical traditions and cultural heritage throughout Texas and the Mississippi Valley.
