AllMusic Review by

The hybrid American Indian musical form known officially as waila and to its friends as chicken scratch combines Latin cumbia rhythms and German-Mexican polkas and two-steps in an irresistible and unique style. This twofer collects many of the best known songs of one of the form's most inventive outfits, the American Indians, whose ingenious interpretations of the genre have made them legendary.
