Who: Terrance Simien’s Krewe De Monifique* super group boasts a line up of some of the most notable and accomplished artists in American roots music today! Krewe De Monifique is 23 artists. 21 people of color. 4 women. One of these women who is co-producing, also gave us the title of the album. Yes, we know there should def be more women and we promise to do better next time – no excuses. But trust us, these 4 are warriors; mighty and fierce! In this Krewe there are also 7 multiple GRAMMY award winning artists and producers. There are New Orleans brass band and jazz legends, zydeco OG’s and some of the baddest emerging artists all lending their extraordinary skills to these songs. And where there is music, there is love and where there is love, there is family – and we’ve got that fam thing goin on here too y’all! Terrance’s daughter, James’ cousins and nephews, and Keith’s siblings are all contributing to these ancestral grooves.

What: A first of its kind, explosive collaboration of zydeco and New Orleans brass band; the Black roots music of our African American and French speaking Louisiana Creole ancestors. Original songs and stellar covers that connect the Black and multicultural Creole culture, history and music heritage of of rural South Louisiana and New Orleans. Just an FYI,  Terrance has had horns on tour and in his band for several years now, making this an even more natural collab.
