Cajun and Creole music developed in parallel in Southwest Louisiana as a regional expression of jazz mixed with rhythm and blues. In the late 1940s, the vest frottoir, or rubboard, was added as the principal rhythm instrument and the new sound was called Zydeco. This category is for sites about both Cajun and Zydeco music.
