Zydeco Madness (2006)

To the forgotten of Hurricane Katrina.

Zydeco is Creole-based music indigenous to Louisiana. The lead instrument of a Zydeco band is an accordion and the music itself over the years has integrated a wide variety of popular music forms. Rather than trying to copy the sound or instrumentation of a Zydeco band, the emphasis is on rhythm.
