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."
