Wynton featured in a new song by Zachary Richard

Last week, during the press conference at the 21st Festival International de Louisiane, Zachary Richard and Francis Cabrel showed a video for their French hit song, La Promesse Cassée (The Broken Promise).

The Broken Promise

Zachary Richard’s interview

Richard and Cabrel’s slow, mournful ballad, laced with the trumpet of Wynton, surrounds black-and-white images of solemn faces and shattered homes from hurricane-affected areas of south Louisiana.
Lyrics in French and English translations are also available.
