Movie Details

Documentary filmmaker and American music aficionado Robert Mugge set out to document a "musical bus tour" through the state of Lousiana organized by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but once the trip was over, Mugge opted to stay on in Louisiana and investigate more of the state's remarkably diverse music scene. Rhythm 'n' Bayous: A Road Map to Louisiana Music is the result of Mugge's journey. It features interviews and performances from pioneering Cajun musicians The Hackberry Ramblers, traditional jazz advocate Kermit Ruffins, swamp rock legend Warren Storm, early rock sensation Dale Hawkins, spiritual stars The Ever Ready Gospel Singers, zydeco favorites Nathan and the Zudeco Cha-Chas and Rosie Ledet and the Zydeco Playboys, and many others who span the boundaries of race, class, and age. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
