The band was formed by local musicians in and around Lafayette, LA. Based in the heart of Acadiana, La Recolte wants to reach out to audiences far and wide and share their appreciation for the Cajun music and culture.
The earlier generations of Cajuns planted the seeds that would generate an abundance of Cajun music and culture. They had to have the faith that it would nurture and grow. New generations continue to cultivate Cajun traditions because they "harvest" the "crop" of music and culture planted by generations of the past. They do so in an effort to carry on and replant the music and culture for future generations to also enjoy. So let's all continue to seek "La Recolte".
