Today, September, 3, 2014 – Chicken scratch for the soul 

Waila music, or chicken scratch, is a mix of norteño and polka dance music. It typically features a button accordion, electric guitar, and sometimes saxophones. It’s not entirely traditional but it has deep roots in the Tohono O’odham Nation. It also hearkens back to early European fiddle bands. It’s spread from there, and Tucson, Ariz. hosts a waila music festival every year. In this entertaining encore presentation, we learn about the history and characteristics of waila music and listen to some of the classics.
