Texas Joik

by wjw on May 18, 2015

When you’re joiking, you’re joiking alone.  But not in this case.

Joiking is normally an a cappella art form, but here Wimme brings a rhythm track with him, for a song as big as all Texas.

I’m not sure where the picture comes from.  It’s not the album cover, anyway.

But what I’d like to know is, why isn’t this the state song of Texas already?

I learn something new every day. Hadn’t heard of joiking before.

Listening, I was reminded of some of David Byrne’s work for Talking Heads. (Considering Byrne’s interest in international music, I wonder if joiking may have been a deliberate influence on Talking Heads?)
