Clifton Chenier is the undisputed master of Zydeco (or “la-la music”), a folk-blues style played and sung by French-speaking blacks in Southern Louisiana and Southern Texas. In this documentary, we see both aspects of Clifton Chenier’s life, the public and the private, as he performs his music and enjoys himself with his friends and family. Produced and directed by Carl Colby. 58 minutes, color.

Cajun accordionist Nathan Abshire’s “French Blues”. One of his best songs. Slide is my tribute to a Louisiana crawfish boil. I hope, for you Louisiana natives who have moved away, or a friend of Louisiana culture, you enjoy the music, and can smell and taste the mudbugs.
