Singer and songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie is one of the most well known Native American performers in pop. Many in the UK were introduced to her work via the Donovan cover version of 'Universal Soldier', an affecting and moving commentary on the men who must fight wars. For many others her performance of the title track to the harrowing but brilliant movie Soldier Blue was the starting point. She easily mixes originals with covers and displays a broad range of styles across these Vanguard albums. The distinctive mouthbow playing is a signature of her recordings, and she produces a remarkable range of sound from it. Well worth delving into for a distinctive voice and sound.
