    Rhiannon Giddens: "Hey Bébé"

    Rhiannon Giddens performs "Hey Bébé," one of nine original songs she wrote or co-wrote on her 2017 album, Freedom Highway. "This song was inspired by listening to a whole lot of early Creole music star Amédé Ardoin," says Giddens. "I only had one verse when I went to record Freedom Highway with Dirk Powell down in Louisiana—he helped me finish the lyrics and here we are! The bass, drums, and stand-up bass were recorded all in one room ... and Alphonso Horne added his genius trumpet to it all, as well as Desireé Champagne on rubboard. Dedicated to the Zydeco dance at O'Darby's pub in Carencro, LA, and Leroy Thomas and his band."
