A form of good-time, R&B music that originated with the Creole people of southern Louisiana. Basically a fusion of traditional Cajun music with blues. Signature instruments are an accordion and a metal washboard stroked with a spoon for percussion. A zydeco song that went mainstream is "(Don't Mess With) My Toot Toot" by Rockin' Sidney. Eric Clapton's "Willie And The Hand Jive" (written by Johnny Otis) has a zydeco beat.
Clifton Chenier was "The King of Zydeco."
