Why Gumbo?

Gumbo is a type of thick soup typical of the city of

New Orleans. The base is made with pods and seeds

of a plant of African origin called Okra and seasoned with typical ingredients of the earth.

Gumbo, besides being genuine, symbolizes the mixture of very diverse cultures, which was the origin of this delicious meal as well as the creation of new music,

the JAZZ!!!

Why Jass?

Because originally it was called like this. In popular jargon he was related to the sexual act and for that reason the press of the time grants the qualifier to

him of infamous music that made it happen to be called Jazz.
