Music from Promonet Ioda Alliance
Artist - Suzie LeBlanc from Canada
A roots album from Baroque soprano Suzie LeBlanc. Acadians are French-speaking Canadians from the Maritime provinces, with a culture quite different than Quebecers and other French-Canadians. Longfellow wrote a famous poem about the deportation of the Acadians from the Maritimes to Louisiana during one of the many 18th-century wars between the British and French. 'Cajun' comes from the Louisiana pronunciation 'Acajun' .
