Anba Dlo is Kreyol for "From Beneath the Waters." It refers to the realm of departed souls. The time of year around All Hallows Eve, the day of remembrance for the departed, is a time to call these souls forth. In New Orleans, this name has special resonance; our city has been called up from Under the Waters to rise, rebuild and heal.
