Best known for helping pave the way for jazz, funk and blues, New Orleans staked its claim in rap with bounce music. The raw and energetic style was first heard in songs like DJ Jimi Payton's 1992 track "Where They At." Journalist Alison Fensterstock and photographer Aubrey Edwards join us to talk about an upcoming exhibit about bounce.

"Where They At: A Multi-Media Archive of New Orleans Bounce" is on display at Abrons Arts Center from Feb. 11 through March 27. Click here for more information.
