  • Alfredo Rodriguez - Play Time
    A member of the American Indian and Cowboy Artists Association, Alfredo Rodriguez established a studio in Corona, California. His rich and vivid colors depict scenes of the inhabitants of the American West: Indians, Mountain Men, Cowboys, nestled in the mountains, deserts, and Indian villages. Painting has always been a part of Alfredo Rodriguez' life. He was born in 1954 in the small Mexican town of Tepic, Nayarit which is located in the heart of Mexico and very close to the Huichole Indian reservation. He was born and raised into a family of nine children, and the first gift he can recall was a gift of watercolors from his mother. Some of his earliest memories are of illustrating classroom assignments and painting portraits of family members, he used his talent to supplement his family's income needs. In 1968, an American art dealer discovered Alfredo's art and commissioned him to paint American Indians. The paintings were highly successful and in 1973 Alfredo moved to America. He has been painting American Indians and Mountain Men ever since. Alfredo considers himself a traditional artist and describes his style of painting as Classical Realism with a bit of Impressionism. Now living in California and winning awards from several of the most prestigious organizations, Rodriguez' work is also included in the books "Western painting Today" by Royal B. Hassick and "Contemporary Western Artist" by Peggy and Harold Samuels. Alfredo also has been featured in magazines such as "Art of the West," "Informart," "Western Horseman" and "International Fine Art Collector." Alfredo lives with his wife Cheryl and three daughters in Corona, California.
     
    He has won many awards, and his art has been featured in books on Western art, and in magazines including Art of the West among others..

  • There’s no doubt that singer Lila Downs' profile is on the rise after her appearance in the film Frida and on the accompanying soundtrack, which led to a performance at the 2003 Academy Awards. The dividing lines between cultures and classes are major themes throughout the Mexican-American singer's decade-long career; but whereas 2001’s Border is more angry about the disparities, One Blood: Una Sangre is more inclusive, if only for the hopeful note of unity sounded in the English-language version of the title cut (the album has two distinctly different readings of the song sung, respectively, in English and Spanish). While much of the cumbia-based, genre-breaking material here is original, Downs and her band completely revamp two covers: Ritchie Valens classic "La Bamba" features techno beats and African drumming; the folk song "La Cucaracha" opens with wailing guitar before settling into a gentle reggae groove. Stylistically restless and lyrically didactic, One Blood: Una Sangre is as ambitious as it is beautiful. –-Tad Hendrickson

    45. 45. Tell me tell me, Mother Jones Tuesday comes and Tuesday goes Tell me where the spirit goes? goes... The tender, the warmer ? the dealers' father time I'm lookin' down in limbo and I see Joan of Arc Surrender to the porno and listen to the cries My people they ain't votin' see the pepsi man waltz A victim of her freedom and that is what they say I'm lookin in the mirror but it really isn't me The diamonds on the monkeys the ladies in the trees I'm lookin to the future I'm dancin' to the beat Tell me tell me, Mother Jones Tell me where the spirit goes? Waiting for the risin' sun Tuesday comes and Tuesday goes The flowers in the valley are blowin' in the wind They come in many colors but she prefers the green She's running to the north pole with a packet in her seam She's got to find the money smilin' at the deputy I want you to find me the day that I'm not there I'd like you to listen to the things that I've felt (listen to me, listen to me) I want you to sit here and hold me when I'm down I'm lookin' to remember see the pepsi man waltz Tell me tell me, Mother Jones Tell me where the spirit goes? Waiting for the risin' sun Tuesday comes and Tuesday goes Mother Jones Lyrics by Lila Downs
