Derek Douget finely mixes his Louisiana upbringing and with his strong individualism and idiosyncratic voice. Raised in the town of Gonzales, Louisiana, an hour from New Orleans, Douget's parents adopted him into a mixed race family. His Cajun father exposed him to all things Acadian from food to music. In a region known for mixing African, Latin, Native American, and European traditions and cultures, Douget celebrates his part in this great community of mixed cultures that has always been a hot bed for jazz musicians.
