In southern Louisiana, land and culture are inextricably connected. The music of the marshes and swamps is Cajun: fiddles, ‘tit fer, guitars; waltzes and two-steps; Cajun French lyrics and vocal harmony. The music of New Orleans is a true gumbo, and thus its roots are African: brass and reeds, snare and bass, bottles and cans; marches and funk. The music of Cry You One, performed by an ensemble of eight singer/instrumentalists, evokes both of these worlds, and one more, the music of the dream world: vocal, a cappella, cycles and layers, performers and audience, together.
On our new recording of the music from Cry You One, weâ€™re joined by special guests including Sarah Quintana, Matt Perrine, Jonno Frishberg and members of the Soul Rebels Brass Band. Pick up a copy at any Cry You One event, or buy it online at CD Baby:
