Episode Guide »
In this enchanting episode, host Jacob Edgar experiences the food, lifestyles and culture of Southwest Louisiana. Lafayette is the epicenter of Cajun and Creole culture, where the infectious rhythms of Zydeco and Cajun music echo across the bayou. There, Edgar settles in to picturesque Dockside Studios for a session with Roddie Romero, a talented local musician. Then Terrence Simien, a GRAMMY winner and one of Zydeco's biggest stars, takes Edgar on a horseback trail ride and then invites him into a jam session with the next generation of Creole musicians. Finally, Edgar is treated to performances by The Lost Bayou Ramblers, a young Cajun music band, at their family camp on the banks of the Vermillion River and a soulful duet by songwriter David Egan and singer Marc Broussard.
