Part of Source Project / Film



Directed by Lily Keber. 2013. USA. Color. 90 min.

"highly fascinating on a universal scale,  whether you're a musician or not...incredibly well-researched, cheeky and completely addictive viewing."
— Kai Hoffman, Londonjazz

Bayou Maharajah explores the life and music of New Orleans piano legend James Booker. Featuring interviews with Harry Connick, Jr., Irma Thomas, Allen Toussaint, Dr. John and Hugh Laurie, as well as never-before seen live performances, archival photographs, and original stories, the film brings to life the unforgettable story of an American genius.

"...the film is almost an act of necromancy, calling forth the spirit of its subject not just in words and images,  but in its very structure."
— Alex Jennings, Offbeat
