A marvellous black American singer and accordionist, Clifton Chenier succeeded in forging a style all his own, Zydeco, and for a long time he was considered its sole representative.
Born in the 30s, the music came from mixed Creole and Cajun cultures in French-speaking Louisiana; when Chenier took hold of the genre it was marginal and mocked by mainstream America, but in just a few years, with a series of hit albums, the man they called the “King of Zydeco” turned the music into an accomplished form of expression that everyone appreciated.
This anthology from Jean Buzelin follows the history of this King’s coronation between 1954 and 1960.
After the titles already featured in the album “Zydeco,1929-1972” (FA5616), Frémeaux & Associés is proud to highlight the work and genius of this legendary artist.
