BeauSoleil BeauSoleil (Rick Olivier)

BeauSoleil means "beautiful sun" in French, and the Cajun group lives up to its name by crafting upbeat and danceable songs. The undisputed "Kings of Cajun music" -- led by fiddler Michael Doucet -- are back with From Bamako to Carencro, a record unlike any the band has done before. The record covers delta blues, John Coltrane jazz, and a piece that traces a connection between Bamako, Mali and the Cajun country of Louisiana.  And yet, you will still want to dance.

Set List:

  • Two-Step de Port Arthur
  • Carencro
  • You Got To Move

Guests:

BeauSoleil
