WXPN’s World Cafe with host David Dye recently took a trip to Lafayette, Louisiana for the show’s Sense of Place series, exploring many things Creole and Cajun.
Dye and the World Cafe team sampled as much Cajun and Creole culture as they could on their week long trip. It was a week filled with music and conversations with Michael Doucet of the eminent Cajun band Beausoliel, Royal Teeth, Lost Bayou Ramblers, C.J. Chenier, Sonny Landreth, and more. Dye also talked with Herman Fusilier, host of Zydeco Stomp on KRVS Radio Acadie, and one of Zydeco Crossroads’ contributors, about the history and future of Zydeco. Dye called Herman “the hardest working man in Zydeco, who is not a musician.” Learn more about Fuselier and hear his thoughts on a music scene he is an expert on. Listen to the interview below.
