This is the first commercial recording of the older style of "chicken scratch." The O'odham fiddle sound is a unique one, with a full band consisting of two violins, a guitar, a snare drum and a bass drum playing polkas, two-steps, and mazurkas (all European dance forms that were brought to America and adopted by a number of American communities including Mexican Americans, and Scandinavian and European Americans). The Gu Achi Fiddlers is a family enterprise; all of the musicians are either related or learned music from older family members.
1988, Tucson, Arizona.
