Synopsis: THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CAJUN MUSIC! - Words and Music to 247 Original and Traditional songs. A treasury of Cajun Music collected, transcribed, and annotated by Raymond E. Francois. "Ye Yaille Chere" is a comprehensive collection of music from southwest Louisiana from 1900 and earlier to nearly 1970. This book is a valuable reference for anyone interested in Cajun music and the Cajun culture. Tunes, turns, chord changes, and words are documented in manuscript for more than 240 selections, ranging from old songs which have nearly been forgotten to the classic songs of Cajun repertoire. Variations of many songs are included, and songs are cross-referenced to original and other recordings and to related songs. Reminiscences by Cajun musicians and extensive notes provide a musical and cultural setting for the selections.
From the Publisher: A quote from the legendary Cajun musician and songwriter, Dewey Balfa says it all: "It's a well-planted seed when you leave your knowledge to some young people. If we don't do it, this music will die and there is no reason for it to die, because it's so beautiful."
This book has been re-issued because of the beliefs we share with Mr. Balfa. This book will be appreciated and treasured by only the chosen, where the spirit of the music dwells. Enjoy.
