Louis Barbarin Biography
Louis Barbarin (1902-1997) was a New Orleans Jazz drummer.

Louis was the younger brother of Paul Barbarin. He spent most of his life playing in his home town of New Orleans, never achieving the fame of his brother, but many of his fellow musicians considered him equal or better as a drummer than Paul.

He worked with bands of Armand J. Piron, Papa Celestin, Papa French, Preservation Hall, and others until he retired in the mid 1980s due to hearing problems.
