Clifton Chenier (June 25, 1925 - December 12, 1987), a Creole French-speaking native of Opelousas, Louisiana, was an eminent performer and recording artist of Zydeco, which arose from Cajun and Creole music, with R, jazz, and blues influences. He played the accordion and won a Grammy Award in 1983. He also was recognized with a National Heritage Fellowship, and in 1989 was inducted posthumously into the Blues Hall of Fame. He was known as the 'King of Zydeco'.

Daily Inspiration #1682

when people look back at our current yearbook they want to be reminded of the culture in that given year. A notable subculture of today would be Djs and EDM. I have personally met many students who participate in this kind of music. I think including this in our year book would provide a sense of nostalgia for those who did participate in this art form. There's not much to talk about so this could take up one or two paragraphs.
