Wednesday Word: Zouk

Zouk - a word I accidentally discovered while playing Words with Friends :-D. It's a style of dance music featuring synthesizers, electric guitars, Caribbean rhythms and disco beats.

It is derived from Creole - zouke, sekwe, or zouke - based upon the French verb secouer, which means to shake or agitate. A quick Google will yield plenty of results!
