Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Using the word Creole correctly is often a thorny problem since it can take on several meanings according to the geographical region or field of research you are referring to "so much so that according to some people, a Creole is anyone who says he is one. In southwest Louisiana, the word Creole refers today to the French, Catholic African-Americans living in the rural region called Acadiana, or who are part of the Creole Diasporas of East Texas (Beaumont, Port Arthur, Houston) and Northern California. Popularized by Clifton Chenier, zydeco as we know it was technically born in the aftermath of World War II in the urban area of Houston, Texas, but it nevertheless remains closely tied to the rural Creole culture of Southwest Louisiana. Described by Barry Ancelet as the result of a typically American experience that blended European, Native American and Afro-Caribbean musical traditions, zydeco is the accordion-based, fast-paced dance music of Louisiana Creoles. It has become one of the cultural markers of Creole identity (along with the French language and the Catholic faith), and most importantly the marker of a newfound pride.  Garry Boast
