Cajun Country Revival: 
A Pound of Tobacco

Cajun music is like country music; it’s the kind of music that has to be happy to keep from crying. Pouring out of dancehalls in Southwest Louisiana, the brash sounds of the Cajun accordion, the sweet drones of the fiddle and the piercing, eerie call of the Cajun singer are the hallmarks of this music. The lyrics, however, hint at the sadness behind the beats. In their debut release, The Right Combination, Jesse Lége, Joel Savoy & The Cajun Country Revival dig into the deep roots of Cajun music, looking not only for beautiful, rare songs, but also for a commonality between the rural dancehalls of Louisiana and the honky-tonks of East Texas.
