Zebra Zydeco

by Teresa Jennings

This lively, two-beat tune is an excellent way to introduce your students to zydeco music. Our recording features several instruments typical of zydeco: accordion, fiddle, washboard, snare drum, guitar, and electric bass.

The song is meant to be a lighthearted little piece. Our hero is a zebra who likes to dance to zydeco music. The lyrics are modeled after old folk songs with silly or outrageous activities which the zebra engages in. The melody is very simple and repetitive, so the song should be within reach of most classes.

To make it even more fun, we have included movement ideas -stomping, patsching, and clapping - right on the music. (from Music K-8, Vol. 13, No. 5)
