Buckwheat Zydeco

Summary: Contemporary zydeco's most popular performer, accordionist Stanley ", Buckwheat", Dural was the natural successor to the throne vacated by the death of his mentor Clifton Chenier, infusing his propulsive party music with strains of rock and R&, B, his urbanized sound — complete with touches of synthesizer and trumpet — married traditional and contemporary zydeco with uncommon flair, in the process reaching a wider mainstream audience than any artist before him.
