Rockin’ Dopsie Jr returned to his hometown of Lafayette and shared some zydeco knowledge with us while the ZC team was exploring the Southwest Louisiana city last October. In this interview clip Dopsie Jr talks about his decision to move to New Orleans and the subsequent spread of zydeco to the land of brass and jazz, the zydeco artists he grew up listening to and more. Watch the interview below and then check out his performance at El Sido’s that same evening here, which will be featured in the forthcoming Zydeco Crossroads documentary.
