Zydeco is an offshoot of Louisiana Cajun blues, and matured from the 1930s through 1950s as an amalgam of Creole folk tunes and Deep South country blues. In addition to traditional blues instruments, it prominently features accordion and washboard and has an irresistible, infectious dance beat. Dikki Du (Troy Carrier) & the Zydeco Krewe are carrying forward the zydeco tradition of Clifton Chenier, Clarence Garlow, Boozoo Chavis, and his father Roy Carrier and brother Chubby Carrier.
