CD Reviews

Flaming Arrows On Fire !
RECORD SHOP GIRL | 05/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Big Chief Kevin on the map. The cd is rated number one in New Orleans and all over the world. Big Chief Kevin is in the studio again ready to drop another hit in 2001. Flaming Arrows can't be stopped. PRETTIEST MARDI GRAS INDIAN IN NEW ORLEANS !"
Fat Tuesday Tradition
RECORD SHOP GIRL | Northern Mpls Suburb | 02/24/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"On Fat Tuesday, the 'Indians' of New Orleans swagger & sway their way through the streets in search of rival gangs to 'serve' in a ritual which dates back to the call & response chants used by nomadic West African societies.

Their brightly-colored feathers & plumes, bejeweled with elaborate beadwork are inspired by the garments worn during ceremonies & by the warriors & royalty of the 19th Century Plains Indians.

Heavily laden with percussion (bells, congas, drums, bass), "Here Comes the Indians" is a Caribbean broth seasoned with a touch of reggae, simmering with jubilant vocals, mixed while still hot with organ & guitar, then splashed with brass (trumpet) and finally plated with a side of winds (flute & sax).

The CD starts with a boom & ends with a version of "Redemption Song," performed with a tenderness that come only come from the heart.

No collection of Mardi Gras music is complete without the spice of this unique musical style."
