I don't know why, but I'm having a difficult time focusing today.
today is the final day of the A to Z challenge. I'm relieved we're not extending the alphabet like Dr Suess did in "On Beyond Zebra"
Zydeco - a folk music style that has its roots in the Cajun and Creole cultures in Louisiana. It is a blend of Cajun music, blues, and rhythm and blues. many other music genres influenced zydeco as it developed. I first heard Zydeco music at a music festival in the mid to late '90s. My wife and I heard zydeco music in the German movie Schultze Gets the Blues.
Instrumentation of zydeco music includes various combinations of accordion, washboard, guitar, fiddle, drums, and bass guitar.
