http://www.swamperella.com The original mandate of Swamperella, “to honour the Cajun music tradition”, has never been compromised. The integrity of the traditional form and sentiment has always been maintained even as originals and Zydeco began seeping into the Swamperella repertoire. The old time flavour stirred up in a brand new pot makes for a fabulous and rich musical experience and the Swamp-stew just keeps getting yummier. Sweet Cajun ballads, knock-out two steps, Creole , Zydeco, along with tasty surprises- standards such as Corrina with a New Orlean’s beat, and originals such as Same Old You , Katrina – a twin fiddle memorial to the victims of Hurricane Katrina and The Frankenstein – a zinging Zydeco party tune (tongue in cheek reference to Zydeco King Keith Frank).
