Put together some cayenne pepper, a bunch of oregano, thyme, garlic and sweet pepper to recall the taste of Louisiana. Mix the washboard, banjo, guitar, saxophone, double bass, violin and accordion to discover it’s sound.
The Cajun Spices is an unique combination of passion for music and swing dancing being the one and only band in Poland created by dancers and for dancers.
The band’s inspiration is music performed by legends of jazz from 20’s and 30’s, the gypsy jazz and the sound of today’s New Orleans street musicians and busking bands. Join our journey to the place where the dew is hanging diamonds on the clover’s green leaves and the breeze is singing softly in the shadow of trees watching the waters of the lazy Mississippi.
