1989 Cajun Documentary ‘J’ai Ete’ Au Bal’ Featuring DL Menard Is An Amazing Look Back [Video]
In 1989, film maker Les Bank made a documentary about the South Louisiana Cajun and Zydeco culture called "J'ai Été Au Bal" (I Went To The Ball). I was digging around on YouTube and came across this fantastic five minute snippet from the documentary and I can't stop watching it.
From Michael Doucet, to Fred's in Mamou, to D.L. Menard, to Boozoo and the iconic Sunday trail ride, this video is packed with incredible Acadiana nostalgia.
I'm sure you're bound to recognize some people in this video. Heck, you might even be one of the people in this video. Let me know!
