If You Have Not Heard Of Los Indios Tabajaras ...



If you have not heard of Los Indios Tabjaras, you have not lived. They were extremely popular in the 30s-60s. You will still find them in their head dress and tribal costumes on many covers. That was a marketing gimmick more than anything as the Brazilian brothers were accomplished classical guitarists in their own right.

Their biggest hit was Maria Elena, a Mexican folk tune. What makes the brothers unique is that their sound is pure, uncomplicated and resonating. 


Have a glass of wine or a cup of coffee, sit back, relax and drift away...

Well, you are one of the few whom I can share Los Indios. My CD covershows a coconut tree. Beautiful songs, Love is a many splendoured thing, Blue Moon & of course others. I was enjoying Los Indios in the middle 1960s!
