Zydeco in Japan - Zydeco Kicks

The last place on earth I would have ever expected Zydeco to show up is in Japan but thanks to the Zydeco Kicks they are helping to feed the frenzie. 

What is amazing is the talents of the accordion player in being able to learn and play the Zydeco tunes as it's not like he can go down the street to get lessons!

The Zydeco Kicks is lead by Yoshitake who has made several trips to Louisiana as they have been playing for seveal years in Japan.  It is also intersting to note that they love the music but nobody knows how to dance Zydeco so they just party on with their freestyle dancing. 

Zydeco Kicks has a web site at the link below and of course he has his CD available as well as t-shirts.  I think I will need to get one of those shirts for 1500 Yen.

Sounds like a good excuse for a trip to Tokyo...
