The Marsalis Clan -- Keeping the Music alive.

Branford and Dad, Ellis Marsalis, Join Habitat to Announce Musicians' Village

The Musicians' Village, conceived by Connick and Marsalis, will consist of Habitat-constructed homes for displaced New Orleans musicians. Its centerpiece will be the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music, dedicated to the education and development of homeowners and others who will live nearby.

It is named for the patriarch of the Marsalis clan, modern jazz pioneer and native New Orleanian. The center will have as its focus celebrating the music and musicians of New Orleans, and will include performance rooms and classrooms.
