The second part of the trip will take us from Memphis, the home of founders and establishers of Blues, to New Orleans, accompanied by Ladell McLin, a young bluesman.
Memphis is also the symbol of black emancipation in America, with the tragic end of Martin Luther King, Jr. in the famous Lorraine Motel.
This road trip allows us to discover the origins of a music genre that comes from African-American communities and that has spread the whole world today.
About Mythical Roads:
Whether remote or packed with tourists, recent or old, famous or forgotten, certain routes are paved with legends. This series explores itineraries that have made history across five continents—some roads and rivers that separated countries, and others that formed links, creating pathways for traders, fortune-seekers, evangelists, conquerors, and travelers. As historical symbols, these routes now ignite the imaginations of millions of people in search of adventure and freedom.
The original and poetic approach of this series casts a new light on these mythical roads. Throughout the journey, the routes unfold through the eyes of the men and women who live and work along them, and who continue to sustain the legends.
Personal adventures alternate with extraordinary explorations, unforgettable encounters, and surprising developments.
