Eat My Country: Native North American Folk Traditions

Listen to some contemporary folk music of Native North Americans (including Tuvan sounds-listen and you'll hear why!). You'll hear bassy Iirngaaq singing from Inuit groups, paired with Tuvan throat singing, along with dynamic group vocals from Cree, Salish and Navajo groups. Oh and a little bit of 'Love lift us up-Buffy Sainte-Marie', 'cause I ran out of music. If you listen closely you can hear a special guest (Jbi) breathing in the background! But if you listen too close you might have your ear drums blown out by wise ol' yokel.... real loud talker that one.
