A Cajun Craftsman Preserves the Hallowed Ping of History

I fell in love with Cajun music (and Zydeco) while on a trip through Louisiana in the late 80's, and have remained a fan ever since. I had no idea how the triangles were made (and yes, I own one of the small souvenir ones the article mentions) - I find it fascinating that they're reforged hayrake tines. Talk about "found music"!

Dieu Donné Montoucet makes virtually indestructible triangles, the instrument that paces Cajun music.
