"Grand Mamou" and "Allons a Lafayette" are two tunes from the great tradition of Louisiana Acadian dance music, which draws on French, German, and African-American influences. The Cajun fiddle tradition can be immensely inspiring and rewarding for any string player to explore, with its rhythmic energy and unique, expressive vocabulary.
