Louisiana Cajun singer and songwriter Zachary Richard has given the world a lot of enjoyable records for dancing, reflection, and relaxation. What makes him really special is a profoundly expressed social consciousness similar to what Dougie MacLean brought to Scottish folk. Richard is an outspoken critic of environmental pollution and a strident defender of Francophone culture. A former resident of New York City and Montreal, he is a published poet who has authored several children’s books and has recorded in various languages, including Algonquin and Haitian Creole. Richard’s album Coeur Fidèle is a hefty sampling of this artist’s blend of moods and messages. Recorded at Studio La Frette in Paris in 1999, it mixes elements of country, folk, rock, and swamp Cajun. “Hootchie Kootchie Pour Toi” sounds like Dr. John, complete with a horn section. “Joe Ferraille” is real Bayou music with bongos, and the rocking “Écrevisses” is all about crawdads. But you can always count on Richard to take it deeper and set you to thinking, even if you don’t understand a word of French. He is a master storyteller and a gifted poet, so adept that the essence of his messages will get through to any listener who maintains an open heart.
