Acadian Songs with Vishtèn

The Acadians (French: Acadiens, IPA: [akadjɛ̃]) are the descendants of the 17th-century French colonists who settled in Acadia, many of whom are Métis.

Acadian music is a blend of Canadian culture and French maritime songs brought over during this rich history.

Acadian musical trio Vishten were in Sydney and we were pleased to film their live set.
