New Orleans, the Mississippi Delta and Louisiana are considered to be the origins of Blues and Jazz but it wasn't until the sixties, that the world took notice of another strand of music from the area - Cajun and Zydeco music. Originally imported by French-born settlers, the Cajuns, played on fiddles, supported by various percussion instruments, such as washboards and later incorporated African-American musical influences to become Zydeco.
