Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys
Folk | Americana,
Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys have set the standard for modern Cajun music. Their stunningly clean and cohesive performance of Cajun French music from the backwaters of Southwest Louisiana propelled them into the world music limelight early on, and by their third release had garnered them a Grammy nomination in the worldwide field of traditional folk music, another in 2004, another in 2009 and most recently they were nominated for a Grammy in the Best American Regional Roots category in 2012. Never before in Cajun music has a comparable wealth of skills been brought to the same table.
