Stomp Down Zydeco

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
This hour-long compilation is a bodacious introduction to zydeco, the accordion-driven R&B dance music of the Creole people of South Louisiana and East Texas. With roots in traditional French Cajun music, zydeco adds percolating Afro-Caribbean syncopation and electric instruments, resulting in one of the most exciting regional music styles in the Americas today. Some of the hottest names on the Louisiana "crawfish circuit" -- including Buckwheat Zydeco, Nathan and the Zydeco Cha Chas, Boozoo Chavis and the Majic Sounds, and others -- contribute. Collectors, take note: all of the tracks except one were previously unissued. ~ Roundup newsletter
