Terrance Simien and the Zydeco Experience
For more than 2 decades, Grammy Award winning artist Terrance Simien, 8th generation Louisiana Creole, has been shattering the myths about what his indigenous Creole Zydeco music is and is not. Leading his Zydeco Experience Band, Simien has become one of the most respected and internationally recognized touring and recording artists in roots music today. He has performed over 5000 concerts, toured millions of miles to over 40 countries, and reached at least a million people during his eventful 25 year career.
"Simien is a Zydeco Master: his voice yearning like Sam Cooke, he delivers soul worthy of Stax greats and shows crossover class." - Rolling Stone
Simien is blessed with an extraordinary talent that expresses the deepest human emotions through the original instrument: The Voice. His eclectic fusion of Zydeco takes you on a multicultural musical tour of the world. Incorporating diverse music styles, he creates a hypnotic blend of Zydeco-roots-New Orleans funk-reggae-flavored-Afro-Caribbean-world music that will force you out of your seat and onto the dance floor!
During the past 25 years, Simien has shared studio and stage with Robert Palmer, Stevie Wonder, Los Lobos, Taj Mahal, Dr. John, Paul Simon, the Dave Matthews Band and more, and has been featured in dozens of films, TV movies and commercials. Simien, along with his business partner/wife, was successful in establishing a new Grammy voting category in 2007. In 2008, he opened the Grammy pretelecast awards ceremony with a 10 minute performance, and later that evening received his own Grammy for "Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album" at the 50th annual awards!
