Grand Mamou and Allons a Lafayette are two tunes from the great tradition of Louisiana Acadian dance music, which draws on French, German, and African-American influences. The Cajun fiddle tradition can be immensely inspiring and rewarding for any string player to explore, with its rhythmic energy and unique, expressive vocabulary. Includes parts for 8 Violin I, 8 Violin II, 3 Viola, 8 Violin III (Viola substitute), 5 Cello, and 3 Double Bass.
