BeauSoleil (French, beautiful sun) is an American Cajun band from Louisiana. Founded in 1975, BeauSoleil (often billed as "BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet") released its first album in 1977 and became one of the most well-known bands performing traditional and original music rooted in the folk tunes of the Cajuns and Creoles of Louisiana. BeauSoleil tours extensively in the .
Grammy Award for Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album. The Grammy Award for Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album was an honor presented to recording artists at the 50th, 51st, 52nd and 53rd Annual Grammy Awards (2008–2011) for quality zydeco or cajun music albums.
For countless records and the better part of three decades, Beausoleil and its creative force, Michael Doucet, have defined Cajun music-he simply has no equal among his contemporaries. This fine collection finds Doucet and company returning to a post-Katrina Louisiana for some live good times. The hurricane hangs over the proceedings, as evidenced by minor-key stomps like "L'Ouragon (The Hurricane)" and "Newz Reel," but the band's undeniable musicianship and irrepressible energy keep the music's spirit of hope and renewal at the forefront.
