What is Zydeco

Zydeco evolved from the music of Creoles, French speaking people of color in Louisiana.  Zydeco emerged in the 50's incorporating additional influences such as blues and rock & roll.

While the fiddle is generally absent (unlike Cajun), Zydeco is usually played with accordion, electric guitar and bass, drums, and sometimes even a saxophone. Perhaps the most distinctive instrument of zydeco (besides the accordion) is a corrugated metal rubboard (called a frottoir) . 

Modern zydeco has evolved to take on many influences including hard rock, rap, reggae, and hip-hop.

Sizzling or slow, this blues-inspired Zydeco will capture your heart and imagination! Soon your feet will find the groove, then you are lost in the music.
