An iconic and seminal figure in the musical history of a city littered with iconic and seminal figures, Allen Toussaint epitomises the rich traditions of New Orleans. Schooled in the jazz, he played a pivotal role in the formation of the distinctive New Orleans funk sound of the 1960s and 70s (giving rise to Eddie Bo and The Meters to name but two) before moving in to the city's rhythm and blues sound.

In recent years he has worked alongside the likes of Elvis Costello, been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and earned a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
