Tambou: Creole Film Screening at the West Baton Rouge Museum


The Museum is pleased to host a screening of Tambou, a film primarily in Kouri-Vini (Louisiana Creole), on April 1st, 2023. Guests are invited to converse in Creole (or English) at a cocktail reception starting at 5:00 PM. The screening will begin at 6:30 PM and will be followed by a question and answer session with the film’s creators. This screening is one of three official screenings for this historic film, which was awarded the 2022 #CreateLouisiana French Culture Grant. 

Synopsis: When threatened with losing his home in New Orleans due to unpaid bills, Emmanuel (Lance E. Nichols) takes to the streets with his tambou drum to busk for money. With his grandson Junior (Christopher Robinson) in tow, Emmanuel navigates a changing New Orleans and seeks a path to stay in the city he calls home.
