What Is Cajun Zydeco Music

Cajun and Zydeco music are closely related. They say that early Zydeco music was a blend of French accordion music and Afro- Caribbean beats. Cajun music came  from the Francophone folk music and traditions from the French-Speakers that came from Acadia and settled in Louisiana. The music is usually accordion- and fiddle based.
