Creole for Kidz & the History of Zydeco is centered on the history and evolution of this unique American roots music genre. Zydeco is the traditional music of the black and mixed race, French speaking Creoles of south Louisiana. Simien had long been frustrated by the lack of representation and resources dedicated to the Creole culture like what had been to the Cajun cultural awareness. Terrance got busy. He hunkered down, did months and months of research and wrote original songs and narration for his recording project. Simien’s agents at the time were thrilled to be able to offer this program, the only one of its kind to the performing arts presenters they were currently working with. It took them no time to book dozens of performances in the first year the program toured.
