Lisa Haley and the Zydekats are performing this weekend in Borneo at the Rainforest World Music Festival.  This festival features music from all over the world.  I’d love to see the reception they get.  Don’t know anything about music from Borneo, but this should be quite a cultural meet-up.  Many years ago the New Orleans Museum of Art brought over a group of artisans from Borneo.  They brought artworks like carvings and actually worked in the museum during the exhibition.  A group went to Tipitina’s one Sunday night to hear Bruce Daigrepont.  I remember dancing with one of the women.  They seemed to have fun, so the Ms Haley should go over well.  Cajun and zydeco have gone everywhere in this world!
