To make a contribution to any traditional folk genre, a writer must know its traditional book of tunes, play to its audiences, and speak its language. Cedric Watson in this 2nd album as leader forges ahead with original Creole music influenced by the French Creole diaspora and West Africa. Creole’s roots are revealed in Cedric’s journey through the influences of kompa, merengue, and the flexible and sometimes humorous approach Black Creoles take interpreting duple and triple meters. This is a forward looking French Creole band bound to change what Louisiana French Creole music can be in the 21st century. Released in January 2010, 12 tracks.
