Lackadaisy Calinda by tracyjb Lackadaisy Calinda by tracyjb
Latest comic pages.

Relating to the third page, the Calinda is a dance with roots tracing back to African martial arts.  It appears to have made its way to the American South with the slave trade where it intermingled with Creole and Cajun cultures and developed a new reputation as a bawdy, forbidden dance with implications of Voodoo practice.  In sidelong reference to the Calinda dance, a girl named Colinda occasionally appears in Louisiana folksongs - the popular Cajun tune "Allons Danser Colinda" among them.

Lackadaisy Volume 1 books are available on Amazon.

I have a couple characters from New Orleans, mostly because I'm in love with that cajun accent, any references you use in particular to portray that?

I don't think there is such a thing as a fricative stop, Mordekai.
