The Cajun French Music
Association a non-profit organization comprised of Cajuns
and non-Cajuns whose purpose is to promote and preserve,
not only Cajun music, but also various aspects of the Acadian
Heritage. The CFMA was founded in Basile, Louisiana in November
of 1984 with Harry LaFleur of Eunice as its founder. Since
its beginning of less than 30 persons, it has grown to a
membership of approximately 2,000 families serving seven
Chapters in Louisiana and four Chapters in the Cajun Region
of Southeast Texas and one in Chicago.
CFMA is also host to the annual LeCajun Awards, the Grammy
Awards of Cajun music. Local and non local bands compete
for titles of best band, best fiddler, best accordionist, best
recording and more. You can see more info on this year's event
as well as the nominees and winners on the LeCajun page.
