Queen Ida

Ida Lewis "Queen Ida" Guillory (born January 15, 1929 in Lake Charles, Louisiana) is an Louisiana Creole accordionist. She was the first female accordion player to lead a zydeco band.[citation needed] Queen Ida's music is an eclectic mix of R&B, Caribbean, and Cajun, though the presence of her accordion always keeps it traditional.[citation needed]
