Les Blank’s (www.lesblank.com) film captures the intense bravado and vitality of their lives, in scenes such as quarter horse racing, coffee roasting, accordion building, cooking and eating supper along with the intoxicating music of the Balfa Brothers, Marc Savoy, Nathan Abshire and others.

MOJO & The Bayou Gypsies tell the story of the Zydeco Rubboard (Frottoir) in every performance. Mister MOJO and his best friend, Tee Don Landry (whose daddy made the first Zydeco Rubboard for Clifton Chenier), documented the history of the first Zydeco Rubboard. Tee Don still makes Zydeco Rubboards in the tradition of his daddy. Two of his rubboards are in The Smithsonian. The Zydeco Rubboard is unique to Southwest Louisiana music, and serves as a global icon for Louisiana Culture. To learn more history, visit www.zydecorubboards.com .
CORRECTION! This was a LIVE performance, and Mister MOJO mis-stated a fact: There are actually a few more instruments invented in America (e.g., steam calliope, monophonic synthesizer, and others). Mister MOJO should have said “the Zydeco Rubboard is one of only a few instruments invented in America”. Apologies to other inventors and their fans.
