SUNDAY BRUNCH with Kelli Jones & Joel Savoy

Longtime collaborators Kelli Jones and Joel Savoy only recently recorded their first project together as a duo, titled Toi Tu Joes A Lamour, released this year on Savoy’s Valcour Records. The fact that it was inspired by a 1960s Petula Clark 45 rpm vinyl record discovered in Portugal that made its way into Savoy’s home jukebox tells you all you need to know about these well-studied precocious musicians. French pop, Cajun fiddle tunes and ballads from two masters of the craft

JAZZ NIGHT with Boma Bango (Congolese Rumba)

Jazz Night ventures to central Africa, by way of Cuba. Boma Bango - featuring local musicians Daniel Coolik, Glenn Fields, Trey Boudreaux, Danny Devillier and Bill Smith - explores the rich Cuban-African musical interchange. The band mined its material and inspiration from a multitude of musical acts (incluing Franco Luambo, Docteur Nico and Tabu Ley Rochereau) that cross pollinated Spanish language and latin rhythm with French African and Calypso melodies, emerging in orchestral Cuban sounds in the early 1920s and traveling back to Africa - and specifically The Congo - post WWII.

Don't miss a special kickoff to Festival International with Dustan Louque & Margaret Hebert.

Having spent some prime years on a major label, Louque has since refocused his career; his collaboration with Hebert, a classically trained pianist and Lafayette native, was inspired from a shared love of classical and New Wave music.
