ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
All French lyrics with translations are imbedded in the CD and can be read when the CD is inserted into a computer. The CD contains a 12-page booklet with comments about the songs, lists of all musicians and photos of the group. This CD is a mixture of very traditional Cajun songs and songs in French which the ladies of Les Amies Louisianaises wrote themselves, some secular and some religious. The instrumental "La valse de Louisiane" is a fiddle duet by 91-year-old Milton Vanicor and 11-year-old Thérèse Aguillard. Twelve of the songs on the album were musically produced by Chris Miller of the Cajun super group Bayou Roots.

Something new in Cajun Music
The Cajun nation was built on soberingly nasal cries, whines and hollers from leather-lunged heroes like Austin Pitre, Iry LeJeune and D. D. Menard. But unlocking the dancehall powers of their classic repertoire – “The Flames of Hell,” “The Country in the Jug,” “The Back Door” – doesn’t apparently require a man’s beery blast. The Acadian ladies of Les Amies Louisianaises pick that lock with a vastly different key, imparting a kinder, gentler, airier personality to songs both traditional and original. Never have those bruising anthems benefited from such natural lift. Rawhide is now replaced by silk, in the form of four-part Cajun-French harmonies. Meanwhile, the band plays on, featuring producer/multi-instrumentalist Chris Miller and fiddling phenom Joel Savoy. So all the two-step accordion thrust and fiddled waltzy whirl is present – but with any harsh vocal bite. Miller’s new arrangements continue sprucing up the past, even daring to fly harmonica above a piano romping about below. The biggest push forward come in Les Amies’ own songwriting, which hails their Louisiana homeland, rails against marauding possums, and, keeping with Cajun tradition, details love turned sour. “How Long Will It Be, Lord” is one such original showpiece, patiently drawn out in stunningly beautiful unison. Plus, unwrapped just in time for the Season are their interpretations of “O Holy Night” and “Acadian Silent Night.”
