We spent two years in south Louisiana in the early seventies, recording music and taking pictures in dance halls and homes, at barbeques and parties.

Our goal was to find musicians who represented the range of Cajun and Zydeco tradition. What we gathered was an astounding variety of artistic expression.

This site is a re-publishing of our writings and photographs. It's a snapshot of French Louisiana culture taken over 25 years ago.
