Tchula is located on the Mississippi-Gulf of Mexico border in the state of Mississippi. The blues markers, which are patterned after the shields of Hank Williams Jr. and Randy Rogers, remind of the giants of country music.
The same road led the guitarists and singers who made Tchula the center of blues as they traveled north to achieve glory in Chicago, as did those who played here, and the same roads led them to New Orleans. Music festivals celebrate the Delta's diverse musical heritage, including several festivals in New York City and several festivals in the Gulf region. The Crawfish Music Festival, which offers a variety of blues, country, jazz, folk, rock and country music, attracts people from all over the world.

Faris brings 12 rural blues songs back from the delta to Africa and picks them up with a guitar style known as assouf to show how close the souls of these two worlds are.
As in Faulkner's novel, the play takes us on a literary journey through the river, and Williams visits places he has worked on in his life, such as the Mississippi, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Arkansas River.
