CDR copy Tape Info: Music of the Tarascan Indians of Mexico - Music of Michoaca and Nearby Mestizo Country; identical to old LP: Asch Mankind Series (AHM 4217), of the same title. Recorded by Henrietta Yurchenko. LP album produced in 1970, copyright by Folkways Records & Services Corp. Features many performers and types of music. Instrumentals and songs, guitars, harps, double-reed instruments, flutes, drums, etc. Musically (to my ear), sounds far more hispanic than Indian. For additional information, refer to the liner notes for the above record album. See front for selection listing & precise durations, and copy of front of original tape box.
