Terrance Simien: The Zydeco Experience
FEBRUARY 10, 2024
For over 40 years, two-time GRAMMY award winning, 8th generation Louisiana Creole, Terrance Simien, has been shattering the myths and often misinformation, about what his traditional Zydeco roots music is – and is not. It most certainly is American roots music and it is music born of the black and mixed race French speaking Creoles of South Louisiana. Zydeco is dynamic and evolving – remaining relevant to allow its artists to express themselves within their genre without constraints.
