“Laissez les bon temps rouler” is a byeword of cajun culture. The music and the dances, along with the spicy food, have for generations been central to the parties that lightened the daily grind. As the offspring of cajun nobility Ann and Marc Savoy, Joel Savoy was brought up on cajun culture and the music that is such an important part of it. Joel Savoy keeps the traditions alive. From his fiddle flow traditional two-steps, waltzes and reels, and the perfect back-up to the songs. Jesse Lége plays the traditional single-row accordeon, and he is known for the high, plaintive vocal so characteristic of the cajun tradition. Fiddler Kelli Jones moved to Lafayette in Louisiana in 2006 to study cajun music. She is also part of the progressive cajun band Feufollet, and moreover writes fine songs both in English and cajun French. Together the trio give us cajun music true to the traditions and borne by intense musicality. Their only Danish festival concert in 2019.
