About Documentary

For the past 50 years Mojo has been entertaining audiences around the world. He's a musician, singer and songwriter and the leader of Mojo and the Bayou Gypsies. About 6 years ago, I discovered his music searching for a soundtrack for 10 'Soldier Story' mini-documentaries created to engage support of the creation of a National Museum of the US Army. These stories of Army combat vetrans were impactful and emotional and Mojo's composition 'Lights on the Bayou', a beautiful and haunting ballad in the cajun style, was the perfect fit. This introduced me to Mojo and the discovery that there is more to his music and more to the man than his cajun accordian. This documentary looks into the making of a man who gives something everyday, lives life to the fullest, and all his friends are friends for life. Watch the teaser below:
