Yes, the music always comes correct.

But gig by gig - and with every personal interaction in every ward of Louisiana's stricken city - Ruffins has gradually transformed himself into something more important than a musical phenomenon. He is now - effortlessly, it seems; he will never be caught trying to be something he is not - an entertainer.
