Milo’s Music Parlor

Hosted ByKim Vu

Milo's Music Parlor, hosted by the President and Janitor of Milo Records, Kim Vu, is an intimate conversation with artists shaping the contemporary New Orleans musical landscape. Living legends, young upstarts, and national and international acts making a pass through the city play an intimate set to a small audience of music appreciators, then step away from their instruments and talk with Kim. The audience join in the conversation. Milo's Music Parlor is a unique New Orleans night out: something between soundcheck and speakeasy, on-stage, back-stage, and after-show party.

Helen Gillet – Milo’s Music Parlor – It’s New Orleans

With an international upbringing in far-flung places like Singapore, Belgium, Helen eventually landed in New Orleans where she finished a master’s degree in the cello at UNO. Though classically trained, she quickly found a musical route of her own where she weaves French chansons, avant-guard compositions, and loop pedal symphonies all together. Listen to her tell all on Milo’s Music Parlor including the secrets of hugging a cello, and how her cello and punk music became friends. Better yet, you get to listen to her music.
