The Cajun French Music Association a non-profit organization comprised of Cajuns and non-Cajuns whose purpose is to promote and preserve, not only Cajun music, but also various aspects of the Acadian Heritage. The CFMA was founded in Basile, Louisiana in November of 1984 with Harry LaFleur of Eunice as its founder. Since its beginning of less than 30 persons, it has grown to a membership of approximately 2,000 families serving seven Chapters in Louisiana and four Chapters in the Cajun Region of Southeast Texas and one in Chicago.

The CFMA is also host to the annual LeCajun Awards, the Grammy Awards of Cajun music. Local and non local bands compete for titles of best band, best fiddler, best accordionist, best recording and more. You can see more info on this year's event as well as the nominees and winners on the LeCajun page.
