Down In The Valley - Music, Movies, Minneapolis & More

It took decades for the music of our distant "French" cousins - long hidden away in the bayous of southern Louisiana - to finally leave it's home. It aroused interest with some of the curious and then conquered the USA. Joyful or nostalgic, convivial and given rhythm by accordions, these tunes seduced music-lovers worldwide, and today the music is recognized as part of the world's heritage. The highly colorful saga of Cajun is told here by Jean Buzelin, who selected the best recordings of the period.
