~Zydeco-Contribution to ABC Wednesday~


Louisiana Creole Dance Music

Zydeco is a musical genre evolved in southwest Louisiana by French Creole speakers which blends blues, rhythm and blues and music indigenous to the Louisiana Creoles and the Native people of Louisiana.

I found these photos in my archives. They are from our visit to Lafayette and Avery Island, Louisiana.

Music: ~Gypsy Jazz~

Hubby and I went to a concert last night at our downtown local theater, called the Rialto. We were treated to a fantastic concert. The band, Swing Je T’aime, plays Gypsy Jazz style music. They are all local musicians based in Denver. Go listen to them if you get a chance, you won’t be disappointed!

Here is their web-site: http://www.swingjetaime.com

A 22 year old internationally-renowned Gypsy jazz guitarist from Finland was a featured guest of Swing Je T’aime. His name is Ollie Soikkeli and he is touring the United States. Unbelievable, so truly gifted. He can play the guitar; started playing when he was 12 years old!

Fun night!
