Cadienne vous invite à faire un grand pas -- en arrière!
Step with us into Louisiana's Acadian past ...
the past of homespun fabrics and homespun yarns, of mouth music and
bourrées and reels, of songs sung on porches ... Share a heritage which
blends Old and New Worlds and takes aim squarely at the twenty-first
century. See Mardi Gras from the chicken's point of view ... or come to
our 1900 wedding complete with broom dance, bucket dance, the promenade
des mariés, singing and loving and fighting ... a typical Louisiana
Our troupe has performed in Quebec and Nova Scotia, in
France and Belgium, on national television in France and in
the United States and on the European channel Arté. We have
entertained at Festivals Acadiens, Le Festival International, Le
Festival d'Amérique Francophone, on the live radio show Rendez-Vous des
Cajuns at the Liberty Theatre in Eunice, LA and The New Orleans Jazz
and Heritage Festival, and at programs from Morgan City to Lake Charles
to Nachitoches. In August of 1999 we performed at eleven family
reunions and functions at the international Congrés Mondial des
Acadiens and were participants at the ArteVida International Folk
Festival in Berea, Kentucky in July 2000.
