    New Sounds
  • The Cajun Influence

    For this New Sounds, we’ll sample music that shows the influence of traditional Cajun music from the fiddling, the accordion, the triangle and other instruments, in somewhat unusual contexts.  Listen to several excerpts from Dan Romer & Benh Zeitlin's score for the film “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” set in Louisiana, along with music by the late Michael Galasso. Then there’s music by the Penguin Café Orchestra who drew from Cajun fiddling, and the influence comes out on pieces like “Swing the Cat” and “Bean Fields.”
