The Zydeco Mexican Connection

LC David and Andre "Seeing Los Cenzontles, Zydeco accordionist Andre Thierry and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos onstage together merging Rock, Blues, Zydeco and Mexican music (traditional and contemporary) was a refreshing and incredibly energizing experience that I'll never forget. And the Center itself is a godsend for the community's youth who learn music, art, dance and culture there from a truly dedicated staff."-- Bonnie Raitt

Los Cenzontles is a band, a nonprofit organization, a music academy, a community space for youth and families, and a hub for Latino artists – all working in tandem to amplify our Mexican roots here in the Bay Area and beyond. Andre Thierry is a Creole accordionist from Richmond CA carrying forth traditions and innovating a new signature sound.

What We Are Doing - Zydeco Mexican Connection is a digital scrapbook and musical album of traditional and original songs that unite Mexican and Creole traditions into an energizing, soulful new sound. This cross-cultural collaboration celebrates and connects two of America’s rich heritages that have coexisted in our neighborhood for generations. Accordion, Mexican folk guitars, percussion, rubboard, jawbone and zapateado dance combine to color this deep and vibrant new mix. French, Spanish and English mix fluidly, creating a fresh lyrical voice.

Why is this important - We are discovering many historic and cultural connections between the Creoles and Mexicans. This project demonstrates the power of our traditions and the many connections we share. We hope to inspire and empower other communities to realize how their histories are intertwined

Says LC director Eugene Rodriguez, "There is a prevalent myth in our country that we all revolve around white culture. The more we deconstruct that myth, it makes all of us owners of our histories, and our destinies."
We Need You! - We need your help raise at least $4,000 complete the post-production work on this album (mixing, mastering and manufacturing) so we can get this music and story out to the world! If we exceed our goal, we will be able to fund the oral history portion of this project, which includes video interviews and the creation on a digital "scrapbook."

Whether you are a roots music lover, a champion of first voice story telling, or simply supporting of our mission, please consider supporting our project. We are 501(c)3 non-profit organization so your gift is tax deductible as allowed by law.

Thank you for your support!
