Creole For Kidz and the History of Zydeco

by Terrance Simien & the Zydeco Experience

Released in 2004. Creole for Kidz is a great educational album. Terrance has visited schools and art centers across the globe sharing this History of Zydeco and the Louisiana Creole Culture.  In this "Narration" track Donald Cravins Sr. takes us on a journey through a Louisiana Trail Ride. The voices singing and chanting are of Terrance Simien and Marcella Simien (who was 12 years old at the time of recording). The male voice singing in Creole French is Marcella's grandfather Matthew Simien. It was such a special collaboration! This is the first internationally released recording Marcella was ever a part of.
