Cajun and zydeco music captures the very essence of Louisiana from the heat and spice to the swamps. The Best Of Cajun and Zydeco includes some of the most loved tracks from these two genres that though separate, share many stylistic and cultural features. We have digitally remastered contributions from the main players such as Clifton Chenier, a leading light in zydeco, Harry Choates who popularised Cajun music with his hit Big Mamou and Jambalaya performed by Moon Mullican. Enjoy two discs of classic early recordings from some of the form s greatest innovators.
