New Orleans Independent Music Digital Collection

Check out our new home today at Digital Collections

The classic platform is no longer being updated and will be retired permanently on July 1, 2024.

Note, collections from the Amistad Research Center will be available only via the Louisiana Digital Library.


New Orleans is home to a rich and diverse musical culture, one where the independently released album speaks to and of the local culture as much as the commercially produced album. This project seeks to collect, preserve, and provide access to this rich heritage by creating a platform in the digital environment that allows visitors to learn not only about local indie bands but also about the individual artists and the web of relationships that underlie the local New Orleans musical culture.
