English term or phrase: zydeco, merengue, klezmer
These three terms (zydeco, merengue, klezmer) are music names, but I cannot find their Chinese equivalent in the dictionaries I have. They appeared in this sentence: "You can hear the accordion in all different kinds of music--from zydeco and polka bands to merengue and klezmer." Any help would be much appreciated. Please write in Chinese what these three terms are called.Thanks!Turn social sharing on.

更 紈  茎 く ㏕   筽  茎 (I don't know if you can see this)
Explanation:
更 紈  = zydeco (phonetically derived)
茎 く ㏕ = merengue (phonetically derived)
 筽  茎 = klezmer (phonetically derived)

I would put the western name right behind the Chinese and use parenthesis.
