Album Description
This anthology of Indian fiddle music of the Americas features performances by Indian musicians from Nova Scotia and Manitoba to North Dakota and Arizona, to Mexico, Peru, and elsewhere in Latin America. Using this most popular of instruments as a way to explore the great variety and creativity of Indian musical traditions?from chicken scratch to the indigenous Apache fiddle?this recording expresses the capacity of Native cultures to adapt and synthesize non-Native influences. Charlotte Heth y Daniel Sheehy Esta antología de música para violín de las Américas presenta interpretaciones realizadas por músicos indígenas desde Nueva Escocia y Manitoba hasta North Dakota y Arizona en Norteamérica, así como de México, Perú y otras partes de América Latina. Usando el más popular de los instrumentos como una manera de explorar la gran variedad y creatividad de las tradiciones musicales indígenas, desde el Chicken scratch hasta el violín indígena llamado violín apache, este CD expresa la capacidad de las culturas del Nuevo Mundo de adaptarse y sintetizar las influencias que han llegado de fuera.
