A history of the unique sounds of the Cajun Bayous. Extensive research, fieldwork, and personal interviews combine to provide a fascinating look into the sounds of South Louisiana from early Cajun and Cajun-Country through Zydeco and Blues to the Cajun revival as the first comprehensive look into the history of this distinctive style of music. Included are the contributions of such legends as Joseph Falcon, whose "Allons a Lafayette" in 1928 was the first Cajun recording, Amadie Ardoin, Iry LeJune, and Nathan Abshire, and modern artists such as Doug Kershaw, Jimmy C. Newman, and the late Clifton "King" Chenier who have taken Cajun music to the national scene where the music of Louisiana is now heard around the world.
