3rd – 5th August 2018
Since 1993, Bayou Productions has organised Cajun and Zydeco nights at Saulieu : A festival dedicated to Louisiana, its music, its dance, its cinema and its gastronomy.
Every year in early August, the historical background linking France to this part of America is recalled in a warm, welcoming environment. The objective: To spread knowledge, to promote and to preserve the Francophone culture of Louisiana.
For the uninitiated, Cajun and Zydeco music are genres of Louisiana music inspired by French, Irish and Creole musical traditions. The first is similar to country and western music. The second mainly takes its inspiration from rhythm and blues.
