The International Cajun and Zydeco Festival returns to Raamsdonksveer this May to bring the Netherlands a taste of Southwest Louisiana's music tradition!
Cajun and zydeco are names given to the musical tradition found in the American Deep South.
Rooted in French ballads and Creole influences, the resulting mix of soul, blues and infectious rythms have brought this music to the mainstream.
Raamsdonksveer in North Brabant plays host to a three-day festival for fans of this musical style.
With a list of international acts, Cajun-inspired lunches and barbeques, a full-on Mardi Gras party and dance workshops, this atmospheric festival is bound to bring that world-famous Southern hospitality!
