Aux Cajunals Mardi Gras .jpg

The Aux Cajunals play kick-ass Cajun dance music like it was played at celebrations in southwest Louisiana 100 years ago. Hard-driving, but not ear-splitting, the Aux Cajunals focus on the old-time acoustic sounds that can be heard in the earliest Cajun recordings of the 1920s. In addition to all of the Cajun and Creole standards, their repertoire includes many unusual songs and tunes learned from rare 78s, field recordings, and directly from master musicians. The bandmembers have performed and recorded with many of the most respected names in Cajun and zydeco music, including Michael Doucet and BeauSoleil, Marc & Ann Savoy, Queen Ida, Dewey Balfa, and D.L. Menard.
