A Mardi Gras celebration!

For more than two decades Grammy award winning artist Terrance Simien, 8th generation Louisiana Creole, has been shattering the myths about what his indigenous Creole Zydeco music is and is not. Zydeco is one of the most unique and wildly popular forms of American roots music, representing the multi-cultural Creoles of Southwest Louisiana and featuring the core instrumentation of the accordion and the frottoir (rub board).

Leading his Zydeco Experience Band, Simien has become one of the most respected and internationally recognized touring and recording artists in roots music today.  During the past 25 years Simien has shared studio and stage with Robert Palmer, Stevie Wonder, Los Lobos, Dr. John, the Meters, Alan Toussaint, Paul Simon and Dave Matthews Band to name a few.
