Cajun music is synonymous with southwestern Louisiana, and mixes elements of French, Native American, Spanish, African and Celtic music. Born from the relocation of ĎAcadiansí (or ĎCajunsí) from Nova Scotia to Louisiana in the eighteenth century, Cajun music has a distinctive sound full of fiddles, boisterous accordion playing and songs about heartbreak and love. Played almost always for dancing, on any given weekend youíll find scores of dance halls across Louisiana, packed with couples doing the Cajun waltz, jitterbug, jig and two-step. The Rough Guide To Cajun Dance presents some of the finest foot-stomping and innovative Cajun dance from Louisiana.
