Iko Iko
by The Dixie Cups
(6 plays) | (0 fans)

Happy birthday, Rosa Lee Hawkins of the Dixie Cups, born on this date in 1944. The song "Iko Iko," originally titled “Jock-a-Mo,” was actually written in 1953 by James “Sugar Boy” Crawford. It tells of a parade collision between two “tribes” of Mardi Gras Indians. There’s a “spy boy” or “spy dog” (a lookout for one band of Indians) encountering the “flag boy” for another band. He threatens to set the flag on fire. Crawford told Offbeat magazine in 2002: “It came from two Indian chants that I put music to. ‘Iko Iko’ was like a victory chant that the Indians would shout. ‘Jock-A-Mo’ was a chant that was called when the Indians went into battle. I just put them together and made a song out of them. I was just trying to write a catchy song.” Read more of the fascinating story behind this often-covered song: https://performingsongwriter.com/mardi-gras-music/

Water Me Down (Pamc Remix)
by (V/A)Gabin
(1 play) | (0 fans)

Laetitia Tamko (aka Vagabon) says of the video: “With the ‘Water Me Down’ video, I knew I wanted to make a visual with striking vignettes. And I wanted to flex a muscle I haven’t shared yet, dancing. Derek Nemecheck and I worked together on movement. We never strayed from the dancing that felt natural in my body and it was so rewarding. Maegan Houang executed these ideas beautifully.”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzFb1z_-Cvw
