BUCKWHEAT ZYDECO was the preeminent ambassador of Louisiana’s Zydeco music. If you’re familiar with Zydeco music, or felt its influence it has likely been because of Buckwheat Zydeco and his Legendary Ils Sont Partis Band. No other Zydeco artist has come close to selling as many records or exposing the music to more people around the world. Buckwheat Zydeco and his Legendary Ils Sont Partis Band has played many major music festivals around the world, including the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Newport Folk Festival, Summerfest, San Diego Street Scene, Bumbershoot, Montreaux Jazz Festival, Pori Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival and countless others.
