CREOLE AND ZYDECO FOR KIDZ! is a dynamic performance centered on the French speaking Creoles of South Louisiana and the history of zydeco music. With music featured in Disney’s “Princess & The Frog” film, Terrance Simien has reached family audiences all over the world with his unique music. Our audience will learn the meaning of Mardi Gras, the unique instruments of zydeco, speak a little French in a call and response, and become acquainted with the colorful and multicultural heritage of the Creoles.
“Professional in every manner, Terrance and Cynthia worked closely with the Center’s Education Institute beforehand to ensure a high quality performance. Terrance and his band were engaging, witty and exuberant during their audience interactive performance. The students delighted in the experience of catching the Mardi Gras beads Terrance threw during the performance that they proudly carried from the theatre as a memento of this exciting experience.” -Morenga Hunt, Director, Blumenthal Performing Art Center, Education Institute, Charlotte, NC
