Today's the birthday of a champion of zydeco, Terrance Simien, born 3 September 1965, in Mallet, La.
His recording, Live! Worldwide, was the first to win a Grammy award (2008) in the Best Zydeco or Cajun Music album category.
Here's a cut — "Zydeco Boogaloo" — from that album.

The Creole for Kidz program, which Simien founded, has raised awareness of Creole music throughout the world.
