Let’s flip the classroom as we head out into our nearby communities to learn and experience the unique things each has to offer. There is much to learn about Acadiana and its rich, cultural heritage. Field trip activities may require standing for extended periods of time and walks on uneven terrain. Must be able to get on and off the bus independently.
One of the most exciting aspects of the cultural heritage in south Louisiana is the uniqueness of the styles of music we live and dance to. Discover the roots of Cajun and Zydeco music, two beloved music genres. This Daycation will combine
classroom time with field trip time, as we delve into the genesis and the history of the music with local historian and expert, Dr. Elista Istre. Elista and her sister, Moriah, filmed a documentary called, “First Cousins: Cajun and Creole Music in South Louisiana.” Elista will screen clips of the film with us, as well as add in-depth insights, with time for questions and discussion. After class we’ll grab some lunch before heading to Martin Accordions, where the Martin Family Band will engage and entertain us with Cajun and Zydeco tunes, as well as a Hank Williams set for lagniappe. This three-generation musical family is a treat not to be missed! $89 (includes lunch)
