Two time Grammy-award winners Terrance Simien and Zydeco Experience brought a flavor of a genuine Creole culture to Tyumen and Tobolsk during their visit July 23-25.  In Tyumen, the band performed for tourists with disabilities at the annualRobinzonada Disability Hiking Festival near Krivodanovo village, excited the guests of the Tyumen City Day celebration at the city multicultural project Arbat Sodruzhestvo, and presented an unforgettable dancing party for children and youth at Rebyachya Respublika summer camp.  The open-air show in downtown Tobolsk was very warmly received by the local citizens, many of whom danced and sang along with the band.  The American musicians were delighted that they had the chance to visit the local historical site, the famous Tobolsk Kremlin.
