Yannick Monot has followed in the footsteps of French music all over the world. At the Mississipi Delta of Louisiana and in Canada, he heard the music of his ancestors from Brittany for the first time in the early 70s: Cajun & Zydeco Music. At the time he was living in Stockholm and released his first Cajun record on CBS with the legendary Jack Downing from the USA. The French vocal star Jo Dassin was so enthusiastic about it that he interpreted one of the songs himself and thus catapulted Yannick Monot and Jack Downing into the French charts.

Yannick Monot has been honored twice with the German Critics' Prize for his music. He is one of the few artists who not only keep a culture alive, but also gives it new impetus.

For visitors aged 16 and over, the certificate obligation applies.
