Celebrating everything about the Louisiana Gulf South!
GulfAlive brings to life the enchanting wildlife and lifestyles of Southern Louisiana. All ten songs are fun-filled snapshots of animals and aspects of the Gulf in musical styles of the region, including New Orleans funk, Cajun waltzes, island rhythms, gospel and more.
“GulfAlive” was written, performed and produced by The Banana Plant, consisting of native New Orleanians, Gwynn Torres and Sid Berger. A portion of the proceeds generated by the sale of “GulfAlive” benefits Gulf Coast restoration through the efforts of the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana.
Songs and sounds on the CD include:
The rhythm and blues of “The Pelican,” the tropical flavors of “Everything Starts with Plankton,” the funky grit of “The Crab Song,” “Albért Alligator” and “Life on the Half Shell,” the dewlap-doowop ballad “Green Anole,” the Cajun styled “No Walruses in the Gulf” and “The Ibis, the Egret and the Heron,” the Mardi-Gras-Indian-inspired street chant “Every Drop of Water,” and finally, the joyous, gospel-like “Little Creatures.”
