Do you know the tale of old One-Eye’s daughter, or Cheyenne Mochi, shakin’ and shiverin’? Hold me, lover, tell me lies Ain’t no coming back from this one Take a cruel meditation upon a slaughter Underneath a white flag Mr. Yellow Wolf, here meet Tomoki Ogata Two ghosts caught in a jet lag Hold me, lover, tell me lies Ain’t no coming back from this one M-A-T-S-U-D-A baby There are some days, it might be best not to remember The No-Nos had it right, kid The cavalry hung scalps from a chandelier in Denver Mutilate the peace chiefs Name a town after Chivington Hold me, lover, tell me lies Hold me, lover, tell me lies Seems like the world cracked overnight There’s no coming back from this one Open up your eyes, open up your eyes Pen to paper, take a trip, my love Let me know what you find Open up your eyes, open up your eyes For a minute and give yourself To a place and a time There is a grave in eastern Colorado There is a date marked Christmas Day, 1944 and not even a name Just “Matsuda Baby” M-A-T-S-U-D-A baby -- No-No Boy is the musical project of Vietnamese American singer and scholar Julian Saporiti. On his Smithsonian Folkways debut '1975,' named after the year Saigon fell, Saporiti investigates his own family heritage as well as life in WWII Japanese internment camps, immigrant detention centers and refugee camps in 2020, and other stories of immigration that illustrate the complexities of becoming American. His songs are the epitome of folk storytelling in the modern era, as he interweaves histories with field recordings from the sites of collective trauma and fragments of Asian American musical tradition, from jazz to rock, to choral music. With his plaintive, direct voice, he takes listeners on a deeply human journey through the Asian American experience in the US.
