Why the red triangle? It's calling you home.

The triangle is a simple, percussive, rhythm instrument central to Cajun music. Consisting of two parts, the baton, or striker, and the triangle itself, the instrument was originally a form of upcycling, or creative reuse, in Acadiana. Early craftsmen developed the instrument from the tines of rice or hay rakes, forging the iron bars into a triangle shape perfect for holding, ease of play, and resonance. Cajuns also call the triangle the ’tit fer, a shortened form of the French phrase petit fer, or ‘little iron.’
