Michael Doucet & Beausoleil / Parlez Nous A Boire - Cajun

Parlez Nous A Boire - Cajun

"These hard-edged swamp tunes go right down to your toes!" (Stern Magazine).

Cajun music has the intriguing capacity to express foot-stomping joy and heart-felt grief from one note to the next.

Undoubtedly one of the most respected performers and interpreters of contemporary Cajun music today, violinist Michael Doucet preserves the authenticy of Louisiana Cajun music while constantly seeking to renew it with fresh blood.

Beausoleil’s repertory runs the gamut from medieval Celtic songs to the latest Cajun hits. With his introduction of rock’n’ roll, blues, funk, calypso, and Zydeco, a black variant of Cajun, Beausoleil explodes all previously known boundries of Cajun music without once questioning his integrity as a traditional performer. "Beausoleil is a true godsend, but watch out! It’s heady, addictive stuff!" (AZ Magazine)
