Sounds From The Superhighway – Song of the Day: Son of Hwéeldi

July 22, 2017

“Me & The 99”


Because of the cultural diversity of New Mexico, the music produced in the Land of Enchantment brings many flavors to the table.  Son of Hwéeldi is another fine example of the allure of the aesthetic beauty in the sounds of the great southwest.

JJ Otero is lead vocalist, guitarist and chief songwriter for the band once known as Saving Damsels.  Their new album is entitled 019910 and it was nominated for three New Mexico Music Awards where the band won for Best Rock CD and Best Native Track (To’ ei ííná át’e’).  You can catch the band performing at the New Mexico State Fair Indian Village on both September 9th and 14th.  Until then, enjoy this politically charged tour-de-force from 019910.
