Les amies Louisianaises – Le p’tit Chevrolet CD


SKU MA0013 Categories ,

This album shows the beauty, richness and variety of the Cajun music tradition and of the Cajun French language. Some of these songs are very old; some are brand new. Les Amies hope that their singing will help to pass these Cajun-French-language songs down to future generations. Four members of the Vanicor family play or sing on the album, Milton Vanicor, his daughter Jeanette Aguillard, his granddaughter Lisa Aguillard-LaBorde and his nephew Orsy Vanicor. Donna Suarez, Janet Aguillard, Jeanette Aguillard and Lisa Aguillard-LaBorde all grew up surrounded by Cajun music and Cajun traditions. Janet Aguillard was proud to have her eleven-year-old daughter Therese record a fiddle duet for the album with 91-year-old Milton Vanicor. This is passing on the Cajun music tradition the only way possible – one generation at a time. Released in 2010, 16 tracks.

*All French lyrics to those songs with translations are embedded on the CD and can be read by inserting the CD into a computer.
