The music of Blind Uncle Gaspard, Delma Lachney, and John Bertrand is a unique part of the history of Cajun style, one that is focused on ballads and melody rather than the dance rhythms and laments common to most music in the region. They lived on the northern edge of the Cajun realm, in the Louisiana parish of Avoyelles, an area not much documented in the story of Cajun music. Comprised of old ballads from France and original compositions by Lachney, these historic recordings from the 1920s have an almost contemporary sound, particularly on " La Dansuese" and "Je Me en Va dans le Chemin." If you're looking for a refreshing break from the high energy of Louisiana rhythm, something that's a bit softer but still firmly Cajun, this is the disc to get.
