About This Episode
In 2018 as part of Big Top's Free
Family Series, Terrance Simien presented the wonderful show Creole
for Kidz. If you were lucky enough to attend, it was fascinating
and entertaining no matter what your age.
Zydeco is the traditional music of
the black and mixed race French speaking Creoles of south
Louisiana. Creole for Kids is centered on the history and evolution
of this unique American roots music. This groundbreaking,
one-of-a-kind program has reached over 500,000 K-12 and college
students, parents and educators at schools, art centers and
festivals around the globe.
This episode also features a
selection of three songs from a 2018 Blue Canvas Orchestra
