South Louisiana women singers and musicians come together for a musical experience that will be a journey through the heart and soul of Cajun and Creole culture.  From the communal living room to the kitchen, from field to the sacred places of prayer, **Femme** will explore the feminine spirit through a celebration of songs inspired by women’s home music, the archival collections in the Archives of Cajun and Creole Folklore at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and the Lomax collection of field recordings.
