    H,

    Never seen or heard of them before, so thanks for the steer.

    "Trad" was my first and favourite music genre (being old enough to have been around before rock and pop) so these guys were a real treat; at first I thought they were just another street band, a few kids having fun, but they're way more than that. Erika Lewis is the real deal and then some. Fun too, to see a lady cornet player as the band leader.

    I've downloaded the CD ....

    Thanks again.

    Eug
    Thank you, very kind, Mine's a pint.

    Fantastic!

    Nice video.

    I was on the main page checking out comments of the LSU/Bama game and saw where you posted it on the Main page.

    Some corrections.

    That isn't Cajun music. That would be New Orleans Jazz where Jazz was born. Mostly Creole in origins.

    New Orleans in NOT a Cajun town. Never had a Cajun Mayor or City Council person in their history.

    And, the food of the entire S Louisiana is not Cajun but Creole. All roux based dishes originated in the Caribbean by slaves owned by Frenchmen. This is a popular misconception when called Cajun food. A typical Cajun dish would have been roasted pork served with rice and yams.

    This is what Cajun music sounds like and not to be confused with Zydeco.

    Thanks for the education. Always good to learn something new. Stuff like that bugs me too. Especially things like people calling anything but beef skirts fajitas. Chickens don't have fajitas, and shrimp certainly don't. Traditionally fajitas was a cut of meat, NOT how it was prepared. There are lots of places where the old cultural norms are coopted and bastardized.

    And just to be precise, I didn't say that it was Cajun music. I just implied that Cajuns might enjoy it. It came from Louisiana, there are lots of Cajuns there, bound to be some Cajuns who were in the crowd.

    I did go and listen to your link, and except for the language, it reminded me of some Mexican musical genres with a mix of Texas Swing perhaps.

    Had no clue as o its origins and had never heard it before. But I DID enjoy it.
