The cues for the musicians are given by the Mongala, the Jemez equivalent of the Abuela or Grandmother character, and the cues are in Spanish, "Orale, musica!" This cue is barely audible at the beginning of this rendition of the Malinche's dance song. This version is played by Gabriel Casiquito, a member of the Pumpkin kiva of the Pueblo of Jemez, who aspired at one time to play the Matachina repertoire. Notice the Pueblo cultural influence on this version, an example of how the Pueblos in general adapted foreign styles to more familiar ones. Recorded by Brenda M. Romero.
January 1, 1993, Pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico.
Featuring Gabriel Casiquito and Daniel Culacke
