The Sounds of Louisiana

Slide 1 of 27

BEAUSOLEIL: Since its formation in Lafayette, La., in the late '70s, BeauSoleil has proven a major exponent for Cajun music, preserving and evangelizing its traditions even as it incorporated elements of other styles. Led by fiddler Michael Doucet and his brother, guitarist David, the veteran group takes its name from Joseph Broussard dit Beausoleil, who led Acadian resistance to British deportation from Canada in the mid-1700s.
