Michael Doucet recently went to Cuba and declared the environment and music very much like south Louisiana.  He went on the tour to hear music and found it everywhere he went, with a tour group.  Doucet and his band, BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet, are well known for experimenting and extending Cajun music.  They’ve incorporated rock and roll (“Not fade away”), surf (“Atchafalaya pipeline”), Latin (“Hey Baby, quoi ca dit?”) and other music.  Maybe we’ll hear some danzon on their next album!
