Biography

Feufollet is a Louisiana band playing a modern version of Cajun music.

Any Cajuns who are worried about their language and culture slipping away and becoming forever lost to younger generations should take a look at a group of young musicians who bill themselves as Feufollet. When it formed in the late ’90s, the six-member band was composed of boys and girls between the ages of 11 and 17. Several members speak French fluently thanks to their participation in French immersion programs, and the band’s traditional Cajun songs and original numbers are performed in French both at home in the U.S. and abroad. Some songs in the band’s repertoire are numbers for twin fiddles that have been passed down through the generations from as far back as the 19th century. In 1999, the group performed in Canada for an audience that included France’s president. That same year, the band’s first recording was released. Steve Riley acted as producer for the self-titled album from Swallow Records, and the album was nominated by the Cajun French Music Association in the category of Best First Album. The first part of the group’s name, “la bande,” is a reference to a unit that has come together in brotherhood, not to a grouping of musicians, which would be “le band.
