More About Today's Music

The landmark album But This Isn't El Salvador was recorded with the legendary guitarist Jesse Ed Davis, who is widely reported to be Kiowa, but was also Muscogee Creek and Seminole from his father's side of the family.  Also on the album providing traditional vocals on the very old style of song known as "49 songs" is Quiltman (who is also featured on the live track below) of the tiny band of T'ygh people, one of the groups located on the Warm Springs reservation in Oregon.  The original release was on cassette, but a new box set has been released that includes all of Trudell's early work.  The live version of the song below is from 1992 and was filmed in Austin, TX.  Since this is the beginning of Shark Week on Discovery, it is worth mentioning that the guitarist on the live track is Mark Shark.
