The Cajuns: Songs, Waltzes, and Two-Steps

Most of the recordings on this album were made in the 1930s, and exhibit Cajun music's characteristically infectious rhythmic patterns and irregular cadences. This lively album includes Joseph F. Falcon's 1928 performance of "Lafayette," the first Cajun song ever recorded.
