In returning to the sound of traditional Cajun music, Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys have made their most forward-looking recording yet. With surprising instrumental twists, thoughtful arrangements, soaring harmony vocals and varying textures, the band celebrates the riches to be found in Cajun tradition, while finding a rich and convincing contemporary voice for this resilient American roots music style. Bon Reve offers some of the best Cajun music you’re ever likely to hear. “This is Cajun music with a clear head, a strong heart and flying fingers. With the release of Bon Rêve, the bar is once again raised.” – Barry Jean Ancelet Released in 2003, 17 tracks.
