Cajun Music

Next to jazz, perhaps no musical tradition is more associated with Louisiana than Cajun.

The Acadians, or Cajuns, found refuge in Louisiana after being exiled from Nova Scotia in the 1700s and made a new life in south Louisiana. As their communal ties grew stronger, so too did their traditions of storytelling, singing and dancing. Louisiana's Cajuns have kept their folk music alive and true to its roots. Today, you can follow the sound of the accordion, the tit-fer (triangle) and the fiddle to Cajun dance halls throughout southwestern Louisiana and beyond. Read more about Cajun music in Louisiana.
