You practiced well during the afternoon workshop of the festive and rousing Bayou and Southern prairies flavor of the North American continent ? Come and end the evening in Louisiana carnival style with the warm and exciting music of Grouyan Gombo.

Grouyan Gombo is one of the rare groups in Québec to draw deep into the  repertoire of Cadian South Louisiana, while bringing current arrangements and its own compositions.

The group is composed of five musicians, notably highlighting the  sound of Cadian style accordion as well as the sound of two violins playing in harmony, another attractive aspect of this music, unique in the world. Exceptionally, they will be wearing Cadian country Mardi-Gras costumes and masks, which usually distinguish and are exclusive to this spring celebration.

To learn more about Cadian Mardi-Gras’ rural traditions, our speaker, Erin Segura from Lafayette (Louisiana) will reveal its arcana after supper on the same Saturday, at 7 p.m. You will also find Harlan Johnson,  leader of the group Grouyan Gombo, at the conference.
