Annie Humphrey- Spirit Horses (with John Trudell)
The horse has escaped.
PBS aired a documentary about John Trudell on Tuesday. The Native American activist and spoken word artist is a very compelling figure. Anti-capitalism protesters, fans of Gil Scott-Heron, Bob Dylan or the Clash, as well as anyone interested in the exceedingly rare combination of protest music and first-rate rock'n'roll, would relish Trudell's AKA Grafitti Man. Trudell contributes to The Heron Smiles, Annie Humphrey's compelling release from 2000. Literary types should know that the album also contains a song co-written by Sherman Alexie. Here's more information about Humphrey and her music. Don't miss the beautiful video for this song while you're there.
