Cajun music stems from the beautiful story telling ballads and dance music of the French Acadians (of Canadian descent Cajun is a derivative of Acadia). The Cajun people arrived in Louisiana in the mid to late 1700’s after being displaced from their Canadian refuge by the British, bringing with them their French heritage. Louisiana was an extremely tough environment to colonize, a labyrinth of rivers, swamps and ‘bayous’ infested with mosquitoes and alligators, but after the long journey South  these strong people made it their home. (The term Creole refers to someone from Louisiana of mixed racial ancestry)

Along with the fiddle, the accordion became the musicians instrument of choice (the imported accordion became more affordable by the late 19th Century) and both where intertwined  for Waltzes and Two Steps at local parties and dances.
The music on these two albums, was recorded in the 1920’s and 1930’s and gained popularity due to the availability of phonographs. Most of the essential  names in Cajun music feature on these two volumes with such pioneering musicians as:

Joe Falcon, Amede Ardoin, Segura Brothers, Leo Soileau, Dennis McGee, The Hackberry Ramblers, The Alley Boys of Abbeville and many more….
Another album by the Viper Label that illustrates the rich and varied pedigree of great American music.
