The Francophonie Festival teams up with the Rialto for their cajun music concert "Back to the Bayou: New Voices in Zydeco & Cajun".
The Rialto goes back to the Bayou with GRAMMY-nominated Creole sensation Cedric Watson and his band Bijou Creole (whom he debuted on the Rialto stage in 2009) alongside Feufollet, a band deeply rooted in the francophone soil of Louisiana and pushing boldly into unexplored yet utterly natural varieties of the Cajun experience.
Watson, one of the brightest young talents to emerge in Cajun or Creole music in years, is a fiddler, vocalist, accordionist, and songwriter of seemingly unlimited potential.
Feufollet breaks new ground featuring originals that draw on deep roots tempered by the cutting edge of contemporary life, capturing the spirit of Cajun tradition without mimicking it.
