That Time Sesame Street Featured Zydeco Music [Video]
I love stumbling across things that happened years ago that are cool yet I never knew happened. So it's new to me.
I was perusing the internet yesterday for some information on zydeco music when I stumbled across a Sesame Street episode that highlighted our Louisiana music.
As always with Sesame Street programming, the effort is made to teach kids a little history about the music. You'll see in the video below, they did a pretty good job (sans the forced accent and western attire).
I think the likes of Chubby Carrier and Geno Delafose would be proud.
You can actually find this song on a Sesame Street album that was put out in 1998 entitled "Sesame Street: Elmo's Lowdown Hoedown."
