Michael Tisserand (au). Zydeco, a musical style in the South with African-Caribbean rhythms, Creole-French-English lyrics, & lively dance styles, has caught on in the rest of America as well. Tisserand reveals why zydeco's identifiable & unforgettable blend of blues & Cajun influences has made the dance music of the Louisiana black Creoles so popular & widespread. Zydeco is constantly being reinterpreted, but the spirit of the music has never been lost. Tisserand met the major artists, & he paints vivid portraits of zydeco people at home & on the road. He reconstructs the legends behind the music's beginnings, offering complete biographies of pioneers. Photos.
