Beausoleil has been steadily releasing albums of indigenous Louisiana music since the mid-'70s. Led by the incendiary fiddle playing of founding member Michael Doucet, the group draws on Cajun (a hybrid of American country and traditional French folk songs), zydeco (a hybrid of Cajun and R&B), rock, jazz, and blues. Though each of Beausoleil's releases is supremely roots-conscious, some, such as HOT CHILI MAMA, represent the spectrum of the group's influences.
Such conventional Cajun material as "Le Bons Temps Rouler Waltz" and the spicy, danceable title cut, which features standard zydeco percussion such as rubboard, triangle and spoons, alternate with touches of calypso ("La Chanson De Cinquante Sous"), and even a tongue-in-cheek stab at klezmer gumbo ("The Mosquito That Ate Up My Sweetheart in New Iberia Polka"). Fertile fiddle and accordion interplay and, of course, French lyrics bring the music's rich history to the fore, while the band's adventurous and vigorous approach makes these songs anything but museum pieces. HOT CHILI MAMA is one of Beausoleil's best, most representative efforts.
