The "White Album" of all of Cajun music
Kateri Yager | New Orleans, LA | 04/06/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Michael Doucet will most likely disagree, but I strongly recommend Danse De La Vie as the quintessential Cajun CD. We're talkin' Desert Island Disc material. This CD still generates calls and requests at our station after six years of regular rotation on the air. Danse De La Vie is an energetic collection of original songs, executed in traditional Cajun style and tinged with world beat percussion (on several tracks). Grammy awards notwithstanding, I truly believe it doesn't get any better than this. I don't see how it can. If you've never bought a Cajun CD before, start with this one. Beausoleil has been around as a band for 20+ years, and the maturity shows in this 1993 album (as well as the subsequent releases on Rhino). Once you've gotten into Beausoleil, branch out to David Doucet's solo recordings (Quand J'ai Parti; 1957) and Jimmy Breaux (Le Chemin Que T'as Pris). Great stuff. Enjoy!"

"I've owned this gem of an album since it was released. After nearly seven years, it's still a lot of fun. One particularly outstanding track is the instrumental L'Ouragon -- but the whole album is fantastic, especially on a rainy, cold winter day. This is an excellent introduction to Beausoleil's wonderful music."
