"Enfin retrouvés" - Theme song for the 2009 CMA!

As has been the case for every Congrès Mondial Acadien, a theme song is written for the occasion. For the 2009 CMA, we’re very proud to announce that one of our own cousins, singer-songwriter Daniel Léger, has written the theme song!

With words by Daniel Léger and Mario Robichaud contributing the music, "Enfin retrouvés" is an anthem for unity and reunion. The songwriters claim that their goal was for people to take ownership of the song. Daniel has surrounded himself with artists from different backgrounds and representing various regions of Acadia. This is how Wilfred LeBouthillier (Acadia), Oumou Soumare (Mali and adopted Acadienne!) and Anna Laura Edmiston (Louisiana) joined the project.

The song is available for download (MP3 format) on the Congrès Mondial Acadien website ( and you can even watch the video on CapAcadie (

Daniel Léger burst onto the music scene in 2002 when he won the Gala de la chanson de Caraquet in the singer-songwriter category. In June 2004, he launched his first album entitled "La route m’appelle".
