The Louisianna bayous combine West Indian, native American and hillbilly ingredients into a unique cultural gumbo. Alan Lomax's Cajun Country investigates Cajun's roots in Western France, visits their cattle drives, horse races, and barroom dances in rural Louisiana, and listens to the salty tales and raunchy songs of its black, white, and Indian music-makers.
