What if Americana actually encompassed ALL of North America? You’d have the Franco-Acadian inflections of Canada, as best exemplified by le accordion, blues and jazz–the only truly indigenous musics the U.S. has ever produced, and the lilting grace and fiery passion of the music of Mexico. You’d also have New Orleans’ premiere distillers of this continental musical mélange, The Iguanas. Based out of New Orleans for the past couple of decades, the members of the Iguanas have (collectively or individually) played or recorded with everyone from Charlie Rich, Alex Chilton and Willie DeVille to Emmylou Harris, Allen Toussaint and Pretty Lights.
