Everybody loves a street party... “Tintamarre” in French means a joyful parade filled with noisemakers and improvised musical instruments. More recently, it’s the term used to describe a public celebration in which Acadians, who live off the Canadian Atlantic coast, walk down the street making noise to show their pride, vitality, and solidarity. This storybook and CD combination features 15 traditional French-language folk songs and nursery rhymes performed by some of the best-known singer-songwriters from Acadia.
