Zydeco Leaves the Living Room and Goes International — Zydeco Storytellers, Episode 5 [VIDEO]
Before Zydeco artists were getting feet moving in clubs worldwide, it was largely an in-home phenomenon. For a young Chubby Carrier, it was nothing for his family to empty a room and turn it into a dance floor.
But artists like Chubby weren't content to see Zydeco happen in the corner of a living room. They wanted to share the experiences they were having, and they wanted to see their music affect a crowd the same way pop music did. Chubby explains something that any Zydeco fan could also tell you -- Zydeco is happy music that brings people together. Who wouldn't want to be a part of that?
Check out part five of Chubby Carrier's "Zydeco Storytellers!"
This series is taken from a live concert at Cajun Radio's studios on Dec. 7, 2012. Joining Chubby are percussionist Earl Sally and guitarist Randy Ellis of the Bayou Swamp Band.
