From the murky swamps of the Louisiana Bayou arose a unique style of the Blues. Drawing influences from local Cajun and Zydeco music, it implements a slow tempo and a more rhythmic focus. It is also characterized by the so-called “Excello Sound” (A Record Label that released most of the Records that fall under the “swamp blues” category) which involves “eerie echo, shuffle beats, tremolo guitars, searing harmonica and sparse percussion”. Many swamp blues classic went on to heavily influence the British blues scene.
