Big Freedia is about to explode.
A few months ago I came across the unforgettable, gender-bending artist on the Fuse network, which was marathoning her unscripted show, Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce. Within minutes, I was hooked on her sound, style and scene.
“We definitely have a lot of flavor and a lot of culture and history here [in New Orleans] with the music. So people come here to see what’s hot, to see what’s new, to see what they can use, to see what they can borrow from us. We are always at the top of the list for musicians to visit when it comes to being able to flip different things into their music. New Orleans was my influence growing up in the hood on Josephine Street. Beating on the wall, hanging late at night on the stoop. I started in gospel, so music has always been a part of me.”
The first thing that hits you is the bass, booming and almost deafening in its intensity. Then there are the booties, abundant and defiantly moving to the rhythm as sweat flies across the stage. A Big Freedia concert is more than a show, it is an experience
