The cultural melting pot of SW Louisiana in the 1920s brought about a combination of music from Africa, France and the native inhabitants that came to be known as Cajun. Essentially dance music, originally derived from Polkas and other forms, it became a distinctive voice in the music of the southern USA that in turn became a strand of what came to be known as Country. This 4 CD set traces the origins of this music right from the earliest available recordings, through its 20s & 30s heyday and through to this most hybrid of music's integration into the wider musical world of the US. The set is extensively annotated with liner notes by one of the foremost experts on the genre and photographs that illustrate this fascinating musicological journey as well as a full discography.
