This is the third album on the Dixiefrog imprint from the First Nation, Tuscarora Indian poetess and folksinger, in the Wake of the remarkable Indian Rez Blues box that she recently used as an introduction to the works of her fellow Native American artists. Sailing from traditional melodies to scorching blues with her usual grâce and dedication, she adds a healthy sprinkling of rap and canoe chants to her music before leading us all the way to Southern America where the eagle meets the condor. Pure magic!
"This album is really a combination of electric and more grass roots. Because...I have so many expressions and genres and bloods within me.... I will never stop creating a little this and a little that. I feel everyghing and it is not intentional, it just ends up an indefinable find of music..."
