100 Greatest Zydeco Songs

Description: Zydeco music arose in the the late 1940s when the black Creoles of southern Louisiana mixed elements of rhythm & blues, Caribbean, French, and jazz sounds with standard Creole music. Zydeco instruments include "button" or "piano key" accordion, frottoir (metal washboard) worn on the chest and scratched usually with spoons, guitar, bass, and drums. The tempo is lively and suited for dancing.
