SOUNDS OF THE SWAMPS: BLACK FRENCH COUNTRY BLUES ROCK CHA-CHA-CHA
THE MEN & WOMEN WHO PUT THE ROCK IN ROCK'N'ROLL
Another Musical Gift From Louisiana, Home Of Britney Spears!
Hard to define what Zydeco is without saying what it isn't. It's not Cajun, which is more country. It's not rock, where you rarely hear an accordion. It might be blues, or R&B, in French. Zydeco has certainly inspired a lot of great music in all those genres, and more. Zoot alors, it's just easier to listen, and more fun, too. Mais, bite the head off a crawfish, crack open a NOLA, do a little dos à dos, et laissez le bon temps rouler, cher'!
