The New Orleans Healing Center hosts a two-night festival combining prayers and religious rites, drumming and spiritual music. A Hindu fire ceremony kicks off the festival Saturday and there also will be a Voodoo ceremony, Jewish and Sufi music, and invocations offered from many religious traditions from around the globe. Performers and genres range from gospel singers and Mardi Gras Indian music to African percussion by Kora Konnection and Seguenon Kone and Ivoire Spectacle (pictured) and Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band. The festival also features an art bazaar and an altar where visitors can place offerings. Advance tickets $15 per night, $25 two-day pass. — Will Coviello
