The Historic New Orleans Collection's popular Concerts in the Courtyard series will continue with a vivacious performance by the Latin band Viváz. This month's concert is presented in conjunction with the release of THNOC's latest book and exhibition "Creole World: Photographs of New Orleans and the Latin Caribbean Sphere" by renowned author and photographer Richard Sexton. Sexton will sign copies of the book from 5:30 until 7 p.m.

Viváz-which combines Latin music, jazz elements and Brazilian and Caribbean sounds with roots of Flamenco flair-comprises musicians from Latin American and the U.S. Formed in New Orleans in 2001, Viváz is centered upon a nimble nylon-string guitar, a double three-stringed Cuban guitar (called a "tres") and accomplished vocals, all led by founder, leader and Bolivia-native Javier Gutierrez. Donald Jarquin (conga and vocals), Rik Fletcher (piano), Abdel Jarquin (cajon, percussion and vocals) and Tommy Sciple (upright bass) will also perform. 

"Creole World: Photographs of New Orleans and the Latin Caribbean Sphere"  is a new exhibition and book by renowned author and photographer Richard Sexton exploring the connections between Haiti, Colombia, Argentina, Cuba and Ecuador back home to New Orleans. Over the course of 38 years, Sexton traveled across Latin America capturing the architectural and urban similarities among these culturally rich locales. Sexton will sign copies of the book, which includes essays by Creole-architecture scholar Jay D. Edwards and photography historian John H. Lawrence.
