Vancouver Island Cajun band, Bijoux Du Bayou, brings high-energy music combining Cajun, Zydeco, Swing, Calypso, and a few other flavors to create a sound that would make the Amish want to do the Bugaloo!

Although still strongly Cajun and Zydeco rooted, you can hear New Orleans, Tex-Mex , Calypso, Swing, Rock and Country elements coming through Bijoux's distinct sound.

When asked to describe their music, any one of band members will usually scratch their head and say, "Well, it's a bit tough to describe....but it's a lot of fun to dance to!"

Jeff Weaver, CBC Radio, Victoria, B.C. tells about this band: “..."Hard to believe these fellows didn't grow up sucking crayfish on the shores of Lake Ponchartrain. They can play and write Cajun and Zydeco with the best of them. Even more impressive is that their performances are drenched in the good humor and joie de vivre that the music is famous for."
