D'Jalma Garnier Life

D'Jalma Garnier III, a composer and singer best known for Creole and Cajun fiddles as well as other artists' collaborations. Louis Armstrong, a trumpet player, pianist, and violinist, descended on the Camelia Brass Band in New Orleans led by his grandfather, D'Jalma Garnier (also spelled Ganier when with Camelia Brass Band), a legendary early jazz performer who appeared on the Preservation Hall roster in the New Orleans French Quarter and who was a trumpet player, pianist, and violinist, who taught Louis Armstrong at the New Orleans Boys Home for Colored Waifs.

D'Jalma Garnier, the fiddler, composer, guitarist, and "pedestrian scholar" of Louisiana Creole, is Tony Garnier's younger brother, born 1956, Bob Dylan's band leader and bassist for the Neverending Tour Band since 1989.

Papa Garnier's two brothers, as well as singer Stephen "Stevo" Théard (son of Magdelene Garnier and grandson of Papa Garnier) are the only descendants of this influential New Orleans musical family. D'Jalma Garnier has been the subject and author of numerous articles and documentaries about Louisiana Creole music.

He plays fiddle and guitar, and has performed and recorded with many top Creole musicians.

Canray Fontenot's study of Creole fiddle playing was advancing as the result of a two-year Texas Folklife Resources Grant to study and perform with the NEA National Heritage Award winner Canray Fontenot.

D'Jalma has taught this subject regularly at the Augusta Folklife Heritage Camp in North Carolina, for Louisiana Folk Roots in Lafayette, and other workshops in Acadiana, including avant-garde and experimental music.

He is a multi-instrumentalist and guitarist who performs professionally on bass and guitar as well as fiddle in a variety of genres.

Allen Ginsberg and Hedwig Gorski, among other things, have performed and recorded his poetry with poets.

On KRVS-FM radio, Garnier performs Passport to Modern Jazz, which leads to "walking through the gate" of young and progressive artists.
