 A Cajun label founded by Carol Rachou. Rachou owned and operated a local stereo and record shop in downtown Lafayette. He experimented recording a few groups in the back of his store and released them on the Jazz at the Music Mart label. It wasn't until the late 50s that he was approached by local Cajun musician & songwriter Alex Broussard. Alex wanted him to record a song called "Le sud de La Louisiane" about the Cajuns exile to South Louisiana. Having being raised in South Louisiana by parents who spoke primarily Cajun french, Carol had no problem understanding the words to this song and agreed to record it. Carol, however, felt it was inappropriate to release this on the Jazz at the Music Mart label, and hence the name La Louisianne Records was born.
