1907
Blues pianist Albert "Sunnyland Slim" Luandrew was born on Thursday, September 5, 1907 in the Mississippi Delta on a farm near Vance, Mississippi. The son of a preacher and the grandson of a slave, Albert "Sunnyland Slim" Luandrew first learned to play the pump-organ in his father's church. He was soon playing a Mississippi-Delta Blues type of piano style in local 'juke joints' and movie houses. He moved to Memphis, Tennessee in 1925 and to Chicago in 1942 where he played with Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Robert Lockwood, Jr., and Littlehttp://www.zydecoonline.com/dev/admin.php?op=history Walter. His piano style was characterised by heavy basses or vamping chords in the left hand and tremolos with his right. His voice was loud and he sang in a declamatory style. He began recording in 1946 (his first solo date was in 1947) and continued performing until his death aged 87. He released one record on RCA Victor using the moniker Dr. Clayton's Buddy: "Illinois Central" b/w "Sweet Lucy Blues". In 1988 he was awarded a National Heritage Fellowship. His influence as one of the most influential blues pianists is still felt today, as the Chicago Blues Festival often holds tributes to Sunnyland Slim.

    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.
