A Swiss band give Cajun music a good kick around the yard

At home with Mama Rosin: 'Making a life-affirming racket - this is my kind of band'

What do you imagine a Swiss Cajun/Zydeco trio would sound like?

So it gives me great pleasure to report that any narrow-minded assumptions I may have had in that department were instantly confounded by the reality of the life-affirming racket made by these three young men from Geneva as they rocked the basement bar of the St Moritz Club in Wardour Street.
