This is traditional Portuguese dance music, fast and lively.

Here's one on a chromatic button accordion... A corridihno is like a race. Listen to this one and you'll see what I mean.

This player is playing a piano accordion that looks to be a similar model to the one I recently bought, with the curious "mutes".

Here's another chromatic button accordion player. It's beautiful to watch him navigate that sea of buttons!

Here's the dance (I'm getting dizzy):

Finally, I posted this strange video once before quite a while back, and I stumbled upon it again today. There are two players playing the right had side of this diatonic button accordion. Highly unusual novelty playing...but they keep it together.

The top cat is wonderful - I hope you have printed that piece of digital art for framing somewhere!!!! It's too much that the kitty's got the gator! :) Cajun cat it is!

That's Jacques, our kitten, with his favourite toy, a gator we bought in New Orleans.

I love the colours in the videos. And agree with Gardenia that the new header pic is great.
