Amazing buskers in New Orleans

I was in New Orleans a few years back filming the Katrina recovery for TVNZ Breakfast, and in my free time had the chance to wander around the city. Many of the buskers who used to be dotted along every street and square had moved to other cities as there were no tourists here anymore for them to make money and for most of them their homes had been destroyed.

But I came to Jefferson Square, a beautiful green with the iconic St Louis Cathedral at the end and found these two guys. Have a listen, it gives me goose bumps every time I play it.
