In Louisiana, the new generation of Cajun musicians is very creative. Les Frères Michot, who gave us two albums, left their children for a solo career. They propose here 15 songs of which «Tu peux pas m’arrêter de rêver», «Moi j’connais pas» and a Dewey Balfa cover song named «La valse criminelle». Louis (fiddle and vocals) et André (accordion) Michot grew up in Pilette, between Broussard and Lafayette: here is the story of their adventures staged with some original songs composed since 1999. An astonishing work which reconciles the champions of tradition and the champions of modernity.
