Zydeco Sont Pas Salés
(Snapbeans Ain't Salty)
French immigrants to US, kept their culture and music, in isolated swamp-lands in Louisiana.
They mostly play the fiddle and accordion and speak creol. The music is mixed up with the blues.
This is a good example of mixture, which is the strenght of Clifton Cheniers' music, in French Creole language
The "Master" is the Creol accordion-player Clifton Chenier.
It's a charming and original form of blues, I think.
