Louisiana Regional Roots Music

— Cajun, Zydeco, Swamp Pop, & More

Flat Town Music Company and it’s associated group of record label divisions represent the largest single collection of CAJUN-ZYDECO-SWAMP POP roots songs and recordings in the world. Our repertoire is constantly expanding and our music is treasured, consumed and displayed internationally in many ways including Film, Television & Commercial use. We house grammy winners such as Rockin Sidney’s “Don’t Mess With My Toot Toot” and Gulf Coast favorites that certainly should have achieved grammy status such as Wayne Toups’ “Take My Hand.” There are dozens more internationally-known recordings, such as what’s widely considered the true Cajun national anthem, D.L. Menard’s “La porte d’en arrierre” (The Back Door), Zydeco King Clifton Chenier’s “Hot Tamale Baby,” and Swamp Pop legends Johnnie Allan’s and Tommy McLain’s hit versions of “Promised Land” and “Sweet Dreams.” respectively. And, more recently, unique tracks like Nolan Cormier’s early 70s hit “Hee Haw Breakdown,” which in 2012 was featured in a 118-118 phone company commercial in the U.K. exposing a new generation to “hip” Cajun tunes…
