Terrance Simien & Zydeco Experience
June 18, 2022
Louisiana Creole Terrance Simien brings his red hot band back to MASS MoCA for a special night of music, storytelling, and joy on the eve of Juneteenth to celebrate the holiday.
For nearly 40 years Terrance Simien has been shattering the myths and often misinformation, about his indigenous Zydeco roots music. It is American roots music born of black and mixed race French speaking Creoles of South Louisiana. It’s also more than just one rhythm and one tempo. It’s about grooving in place and dancing freely. It’s about amazing vocal performance.
Come on down and hear for yourself!
