Terrance Simien: The Zydeco Experience

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.

Zydeco is dynamic and evolving – remaining relevant to allow its artists to express themselves within their genre without constraints.
