The American Indians Play Waila

The American Indians Play Waila

by The American Indians

This collection brings together two classic recordings by The American Indians, one of the most innovative bands in the saga of waila, the lively social dance music of southern Arizona's Native peoples. Also known as "chicken scratch" waila features the intricately intertwined melodies of saxophone and accordion propelled by the rhythms of guitar, bass, and drums playing polkas, two-steps, and cumbias. While staying true to the traditions of waila, The American Indians played with a highly original flare making them legends of chicken scratch.

Originally released as two albums, The American Indians Play Chicken Scratch (1974) and Waila - Social Dance Music: The American Indians Album 2 (1976).
