In New Orleans, we’re accustomed to seeing traditional jazz bands from Japan and other parts of the world. Well, it had to happen: here’s a zydeco band from Japan, the Zydeco Kicks performing Boozoo Chavis’ great hit, Paper in my shoe. They seem to be performing in a club called Hey-Joe, in Yokahama in 2012, if the sign behind them is to be believed. There are some other videos of them performing more zydeco, too. Here’s their Japanese site, with t-shirts and their CD, Trailride, with zydeco and Cajun tunes.
