Cajun music (French: Musique cadienne), an emblematic music of Louisiana played by the Cajuns, is rooted in the ballads of the French-speaking Acadians of Canada. Cajun music is often mentioned in tandem with the Creole-based zydeco music, both of Acadiana origin, and both of which have influenced the other in many ways.

I'm goin' down in Louisiana, baby, behind the sun. So Muddy Waters would sing in his well-loved 'Louisiana Blues'. Muddy may have been looking for mojo hands in New Orleans, but he would have been totally unaware of Goldband Records in the neighbouring port of Lake Charles. By the turn of the 1960s, Eddie Shuler's tiny label was recording all kinds of local music, including some of the most authentic downhome blues anywhere. If you listen to the old Storyville LP today, you will notice the low-fi sound - due in part to too many tracks being squeezed onto the album. Now you can hear these tracks in the best possible sound, although with Goldband it will never be the hi-est of fi (which is part of the label's enduring charm). As a sidebar, Storyville's Karl Emil Knudsen assisted greatly with this project by supplying the LP tapes that were no longer in the Goldband vaults.
