This horrible day, September 11 (9/11) should be, and will be, a time of reflection for what happened in New York City, Washington, D.C. and that lonesome field in Pennsylvania. We should all say a little prayer for those innocent lives that were lost.
But we should not be completely somber. Life is, after all, a celebration and nothing celebrates life better than music and no music does that better than Zydeco. Here, then, is the Queen of them all, Queen Ida and her Bon Temps Zydeco Band.

One of my best impulsive trips was over to Breaux Bridge, where I discovered crawfish etoufeee in puff pastry and, just down the road at the levee, Whiskey River, houseboats and moonlight on the Atchafalaya.
If you don’t know the Pine Leaf Boys or Geno Delafose, poke around YouTube a bit and enjoy. Like Queen Ida, they’re a good antidote when the horror of life seems overwhelming.
short comment: i love this music. thank you.
