  Music of Louisiana - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In southwestern Louisiana in the 1800s, the fiddle was the most popular Cajun instrument and the music still carried clear influences from the Poiteu region of France and the Scottish/Canadian influences of their earlier homeland.
In the late 1930s and 1940s, country music became the dominant influence on Cajun music, and bass and steel guitars were used.
At first the music was known by various names such as "hot music" "hot ragtime" and "ratty music"; the term "jazz" (early on often spelled "jass") did not become common until the 1910s.
