The variant of rock’n’roll that emanated from the Gulf Coast of South Louisiana and South East Texas in the 1950s-60s is as evocative of the area as chicken gumbo, crawfish étouffée and red beans and rice. The youthful Cajuns of the period threw themselves into r’n’r like teenagers across the globe, but had additional influences, not just the hillbilly and blues that created rockabilly, but the ethnic music of their parents and, most telling, the R&B sounds carried over the airwaves from New Orleans. In time, largely through the writings of Englishman John Broven, the music they created would become known as swamp pop, and the town of Ville Platte would claim the title of Swamp Pop Capital Of The World, host a Hall Of Fame dedicated to the genre and, each Mardi Gras, hold a reunion of swamp pop performers which culminates in a concert at the town’s civic centre.
