"New Orleans has music roots going back to it's beginning, when the African slaves were allowed to play drums outside the city walls with the Native Americans who came to trade with the colonists. This Rising Sun CD is a reunion of these musical streams; long lost brothers in celebration... dancing, dancing, dancing. Join us in this dance of unity, peace and healing." -- Rev. Goat Carson Mardi Gras Indian Big Chief Monk Boudreaux and Renegade Cherokee Reverend Goat Carson had a dream of recording Native American tribesmen and African American Indians together for the first time -- a union 125 years in the making. Rising Sun brings together the Dakota, Lakota, Cherokee and Choctaw; infused with the flair of the New Orleans Mardi Gras Indian. Rising Sun is released by Los Angeles based indie-label, f.Boo Music, and co-produced by Keven Brennan and Rueben Williams. The music embodies grooves such as New Orleans funk (Golden Crown, Hey Mama), reggae (Rising Sun), atmospheric, ambient blues (Swing Low) to afro-beat punk (Whambam Medicine Man), and Hendrix-esque psychedelic rock (Voodoo Woman).
