    Zydefest

    Remembering the 7th Annual
    Southwest Louisiana Zydeco Festival


    by Katrinna Huggs

    August 1, 1989

    Looking for a hot time over the Labor Day weekend? With South Louisiana’s sultry summer weather and a zydeco festival, you’ve got it! The seventh annual Southwest Louisiana Zydeco Festival takes place Saturday, September 2, 1989 at the Southern Development Farm in the rural community of Plaisance, between Opelousas and Ville Platte. If you’re a lover of zydeco music or just want an intensive initiation to the music, this is the zydeco festival to attend. It is one of the most popular festivals in the state.

    For those not fully familiar with Southern Louisiana music, the word zydeco is a corruption of the French “haricots,” or snap beans. The musical form is another version of Cajun music, but with a rhythm derived from the black Creoles of rural southwest Louisiana.

    But zydeco is more than just south Louisiana black man’s music. It’s his sustenance. Consumed by Creoles like red beans and rice and cherished like religion, zydeco is a mesh of cultures and musical patterns creating one highly rhythmic sound. The rest of the world is discovering zydeco music, especially in the wake of Paul Simon’s mega-platinum album, Graceland, released in 1986, which featured zydeco performed by one of zydeco’s foremost performers, Rockin’ Dopsie (that’s pronounced Doopsie) and the Cajun Twisters.

    Festival News Inside Zydeco, Part Two

    Inside Zydeco, Part Two

    by Katrinna Huggs

    January 1, 1990


    Fernest Arceneaux
    "The New Prince of Accordion"
    (August 27, 1940-September 4, 2008)



    On the dark, winding, old Breaux Bridge highway, a neon sign outside the former King Creole club flashes: “Saturday at 9 p.m. Fernest and the Thunders.” Inside it’s 9:30 p.m., but Fernest is behind the bar using the pay phone.

    He hangs up the phone and heads for the stage. Only a handful here tonight and most of those are employees. Fernest doesn’t look much in the mood.

    A friend moseys into the bar as the Thunders are tuning up. She orders a beer and complains a bit about her cramps. And no, she hasn’t heard Fernest, but she’s not much in the mood tonight, you can tell.

    Then Fernest picks up his accordion. Instantaneous change of atmosphere. It doesn’t take one song, it takes about one beat and the friend jumps to her feet swaying to the rhythm of the Thunders. Two songs later, not an employee is working. The only indication that someone’s in control of the bar is a little green stop light flashing: “The bar is open.” Everyone in the house—from the patrons to the bartender—is paired off on the dance floor. The music is just too good to waste.

    Inside Zydeco, Part One

    by Katrinna Huggs

    December 01, 1989


    Clifton Chenier
    "The King Of Zydeco Music"
    (June 25, 1925 - December 12, 1987)



    “Honey, in a bar on in a church, it doesn’t make no difference—it’s all the same.”

    Zydeco. More than just South Louisiana black man’s music, it’s his sustenance. Consumed like beans and rice and cherished like religion. A mesh of cultures and musical patterns into one distinct sound. A social institution where the functions of the dance hall and the local church often syncretize, ironically, like the unity and diversity of zydeco music itself.

    It’s been around Acadiana a long time, from the “La-la” days of the old one-step zydeco that originated in bals des maisons to today’s two-step dances in urban and rural clubs. But just how long no one seems quite sure. At any rate, they’ve been playing the music since before World War II, back before Clifton Chenier was crowned its king in the ’50s for turning the zydeco sound around when he introduced the bass guitar and a horn section to the traditional fiddle and accordion.

    Lafayette Night at Apollo Theater Fuses Cultures, Ideas

    Nathan and the Zydeco Cha Chas Play at the Reception!

    Oct. 26, 2013

    by Herman Fuselier


    A private reception focused on Lafayette was
    held at the Apollo's Sound Café with music
    by Nathan and the Zydeco Cha Chas.

    Herman Fuselier, The Advertiser

    Lafayette Night at the Apollo Theater Saturday was mostly about good music and good food just like all parties here in Lafayette. However, there was some business mixed in among the fun.

    An entourage of at least 20 officials, arts supporters and others from Lafayette attended the final night of “James Brown: Get on the Good Foot,” a dance tribute to the Godfather of Soul at the Apollo Theater.

    The show, which launched Oct. 17 at Lafayette’s Heymann Performing Arts Center, opened at the Apollo on Tuesday.

    The 2013 22nd annual Mississippi Gulf Coast Blues Festival will be a daylong party under the pavilion at the Jackson County Fairgrounds on Saturday.

    Performing at the festival will be a collection of bands that have blues roots but are more like the funk and soul bands of the 1970s and 1980s. Their styles are reminiscent of music ranging from early James Brown to the party sounds of Morris Day and The Time.

    The Georgia-based band Klass Band Brotherhood, for example, calls their music Southern soul -- music that tells a story and makes you move. "It's just like moonshine in a mason jar," their biography states.

    Shreveport branded "Southern Soul Capitol"

    Southern Soul Music Runs Deep in Northwest Louisiana!

    August 30, 2013

    KSLA News


    Shreveport has been dubbed the "Southern Soul Capitol" as part of an effort to bring recognition to the culture rich music history of Northwest Louisiana and bring more tourism to the region.

    The announcement was made Thursday at Festival Plaza in downtown Shreveport, where upcoming events were announced that will give the public a chance to experience the Southern Soul flavor of the area.

    It's an idea championed by Playaz and Playettes Executive Director Ron Hardy in collaboration with the Shreveport Regional Arts Council and the Shreveport-Bossier Tourist & Convention Bureau.

    www.ZydecoOnline.com

    While many in the Zydeco Nation will be enjoying the company of family and friends, good food, and lot's of Creole and Zydeco Music this Labor Day weekend, we should never forget that many people in the Zydeco Nation are suffering from lack of basic human rights and food insecurity. The sad truth and harsh reality is that food insecurity affects children and the elderly at shockingly disproportionate rates and occurs year round.

    Zydeco Musicians J. Paul Jr & the Zydeco Nubreeds and Lil' Nate & the Zydeco Big Timers are lending their talent this Labor Day weekend to shine light on the Downtown Labor Day Food Drive on Monday, September 2, 2013 in Lafayette, Louisiana.

    Back in the early 1980s, the Treasures of Opelousas must have known they had a diamond in the rough. The Treasures, a grass-roots organization affiliated with Holy Ghost Catholic Church in Opelousas, the nation’s largest black Catholic congregation, was concerned that the hometown zydeco music was dying.

    They organized an event that the world had never seen — a zydeco festival. Their first event, the Original Southwest Louisiana Zydeco Music Festival, drew 400 people to a soybean field in the St. Landry Parish hamlet of Plaisance.

    More than 4,000 showed up the following year. As many as 10,000 have attended the Plaisance event, which is now imitated at zydeco festivals stretching from Connecticut to California, on into England and France.

    The morning will begin with a free concert and all the dancing you want under the historic oaks that line Courthouse Square in downtown Opelousas.

    The popular Cotati Accordion Festival (CAF) will squeeze in its 23rd year this weekend, Aug. 17-18. As always, crowds, families and accordion lovers alike can expect an exciting and colorful range of diverse music and performances, but this year they can expect something special: acclaimed Zydeco musician and Grammy-award-nominee Andree Thierry will be on stage performing with his band, Zydeco Magic, on Sunday.

    This will be Thierry’s second time attending and performing at the CAF, though his last visit was a good 18 years ago. It is Zydeco that Thierry is known for and what seems to be his calling in music, of course, but it was the accordion and the accordion alone that he first fell in love with when he was a child listening to traditional Creole music from his grandparents’ influences. It is because of this Thierry says he finds the CAF so great.

    Black Farmers Settlement Update Coming

    Department of Agriculture To Send Out Payment Notices


    August 8, 2013

    by Deborah Barfield Berry
    Daily World Newspaper



    WHERE THEY FARM
    Many of the payments are expected to go to farmers in
    Mississippi and Alabama, where more black farmers are concentrated.
    More than 40,000 farmers filed claims, including some from Louisiana.
    For more information, farmers can call (877) 810-8110.



    About 18,000 black farmers, mostly in the South, are expected to receive notice later this month they will receive payments as part of a landmark $1.2 billion discrimination settlement with the Department of Agriculture.

    The lead lawyers for the farmers were expected Friday to submit a formal report from the claims administrator, including final payment figures, to U.S. District Court in Washington.

    “They need to go ahead and expedite these payments so the farmers won’t have to continue to wait,” said John Boyd, president of the National Black Farmers Association. “Here it is planting season has come and gone and the farmers still don’t have their money… These farmers are frustrated.”

    It’s been more than two years since President Barack Obama signed the settlement into law. Congress approved the settlement in 2010 in what has become known as “the Pigford case.”

    The case against federal agriculture officials found the agency denied loans and other assistance for years to black farmers because of their race.

    Terrance Simien Adds A New CD To His Already Stellar Career

    "Dockside Sessions" Includes 10 Classic and Bilingual Originals

    July 10, 2013

    by Herman Fusilier
    The Times



    Terrance Simien and Zydeco Experience perform during
    the pretelecast ceremony at the 50th annual Grammy Awards
    at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. In 2008, Simien won the
    first Grammy for Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album.

    (Photo Credit: Robert Hanashiro, USA Today)


    In the early 1980s, Terrace Simien was a teenager growing up in the tiny St. Landry Parish hamlet of Mallet. His future seemed pretty clear.

    Simien would be a bricklayer or a welder, maybe play a little zydeco music on the weekends. But 32 years, 7,000 performances, 45 countries and one Grammy later, Simien remains in awe of his life as a musician.

    “This is way better than I expected,” said Simien. “I look back and think about how good it’s been and how hard it’s been. I’ve been married 23 years, but most of my time is on the road. But we do half the year on the road, half at home, so it’s not too bad. When I first started, it was a lot more than that.

There are many parents who are having a difficult time making ends meet and it's our children who suffer.

    Call them “Real Cowboys.” Hundreds of riders with the Real Cowboy Association had a bucking, galloping good time Saturday at the 11th Annual Mississippi Black Rodeo at the Mississippi Coliseum. The experience was a first for Otis Riley of Kosciusko, who came to the event because his children wanted to see cowboys and cowgirls up close.

    History of Black Cowboys Runs Deep

    One-third of America’s Cowboys were African American

    Roy Rogers and Billy the Kid may have been the most famous cowboys of the Old West, but one-third of America’s cowboys were African Americans.

    From the freed slaves who found work on the earliest cattle drives to the contemporary rodeo circuit, African American cowboys have been part of the West’s heritage for generations.

    “A lot of African Americans went west —— that’s the one place where they could be judged like anyone else,” said Kevin Woodson of the Texas-based Cowboys of Color, sponsors of the largest multicultural rodeo tour in the world. Woodson and the Albuquerque-born Aaron Hopkins, also from Cowboys of Color, will speak at the New Mexico History Museum at 2 p.m. today after a screening of the short documentary “African American Cowboy: The Forgotten Man of the West” by film student Victoria Lioznyansky.

    Toggle Content What is Zydeco?
    Zydeco Music is a unique form of musical expression that originated in rural southwest Louisiana. Locally known as "la la" music, Zydeco music was formed and forged in a time best forgotten--a time when African-Americans had to struggle in the fields from sunup to sundown as sharecroppers so that their children might reap a better life.

    It was these backbreaking hard times that help to define one of the most vibrant and successful musical traditions in the world. The phrase "Zydeco sont pas sale'" means "The snapbeans are not Salty" in Creole French, and the music draws upon French, Creole, West African, Cajun, Caribbean, and R & B musical traditions. Zydeco Music is characterized by the use of the accordion, spoons, scrubboard, fiddle and triangle.
