For more than two decades Grammy Award-winning artist Terrance Simien has been shattering the myths about what his indigenous Creole Zydeco music is and is not. An eighth generation Louisiana Creole, Simien has led his Zydeco Experience Band and become one of the most respected and internationally recognized touring and recording artists in roots music today. He has performed over 5,000 concerts, toured millions of miles to over 40 countries and reached at least a million people during his eventful 25 year career.
