VIDEO: Prairie Creole Music and Dance / Prairie Creole Mardi Gras

Music and Mardi Gras are at the heart of both Creole and Cajun rural culture in Louisiana. This clip presents a glimpse into this vibrant world, showing music performances and a Creole Mardi Gras traditional ritual. The music performances feature an elaborate fiddle tune and also display the pulsing rhythms of a live performance at a Dance Hall. The Mardi Gras gathering on the dusty roads culminates to the chasing of a chicken for the gumbo pot.
