Description

Waila, commonly known as “chicken scratch”, is the popular dance music of the native peoples of the southern Arizona deserts. The intricate melody lines of saxophone and accordion are accompanied by guitar, bass and drums in these renditions of polkas, cumbias, mazurkas and shottiches. On this recording, chicken scratch veterans T.O. Combo deliver their own exciting variety of Waila.
