Put on your purple, green and gold, your masks, beads, and crowns, and get ready for the party of the year: Mardi Gras! Originally a Catholic tradition to end the Carnival, a time of letting loose before the more ascetic weeks of Lent, it has now become a universal occasion for revelry. For those of us in the US, the best-known party takes place in New Orleans, where the Crescent City's music has become inextricably linked with the festivities. For those of us who can't make it down to Louisiana this weekend, this playlist re-creates some of the pageantry of the party and pays tribute to the music and musicians of the Mississippi Delta.
