The War Racket

(2017)
dall'album "Medicine Songs"
Poesia del 2008 messa in musica nel 2017

Buffy Sainte Marie è una veterana della canzone folk, ha la stessa età di Joan Baez e di Bob Dylan e ha cominciato a suonare negli anni '60 scrivendo dei classici contro la guerra come Universal Soldier.

Negli ultimi anni, invece di adagiarsi a riproporre il suo vecchio repertorio ha scritto nuove canzoni, adattando gli arrangiamenti a sonorità moderne, elettroniche e hip-hop ma continuando a scrivere testi impegnati e lucidissimi. Recentissima è questa invettiva "The War Racket" contro tutti i potenti che si arricchiscono con le guerre con una forza che ricorda Masters of War.

Il testo riportato ha alcune piccole differenze con la versione cantata.
Ooo you're slick – you investors in hate

The Uranium War

[2015]

Album :POWER IN THE BLOOD

"A true story from within the American Indian movement.
This is a prequel to my other song “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee,” and I dedicate it to the family of the late Anna Mae Aquash whom I mention in both songs. A real tragedy."

Power in the Blood

Parole originali e musica / Original lyrics and music: Alabama 3 (2002)
Nuove parole/New Lyrics: Buffy Sainte Marie (2015)
Album: Power In The Blood

Conosciuta come cantante folk, protagonista del folk revival degli anni '60, fiera e autentica voce dei nativi americani, Buffy Sainte Marie si avventura a più di settant'anni in sonorità che fanno pensare più a Bjork che a Joan Baez. Nella title track dell'album riscrive le parole di un classico della musica elettronica trasformandolo in una potente canzone contro la guerra (che nella prima strofa si scaglia anche contro gli OGM).

The wisdoms inherent in our own DNA are our real power, and we won’t be goaded into war by feudal system racketeers who can outgun us.

I wrote new words to the Alabama3 classic, and they lent me samples from their original recording. I re-wrote some of the words, turned it into an anti-war song. Strange: we seem so different musically and personally, but we’re mutual fans and I love the cross-pollination in the song.

Parole e musica di Buffy Sainte-Marie

"Keshagesh means Greedy Guts. It's what you call a little puppy who eats his own and then wants everybody else's." Buffy Sainte-Marie

Keshagesh [in lingua cree, una delle lingue algonchine canadesi] significa “istinto ingordo”, quello tipico di certi cuccioli che, mangiata la propria porzione, pretenderebbero anche quella degli altri.

[1990]
Album: Coincidence and Likely Stories [1992]

If you prick us, do we not bleed?..
If you poison us, do we not die?

Shylock in Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice (III.i.56-57)

The journalist Peter Eichstaedt - in his meticulously researched book (1), relates another tragic chapter in the history of genocide intrinsic to the colonization and "development" of the Americas. He introduces his work with the explanation that it tells the story of ''the sacrifice of lives, families, and land" that the Dine (Navajo), Laguna Pueblo,and other Aboriginal nations of the U.S. southwest have made in the interest of "America's quest for nuclear superiority." He recounts the terrible toll of
death, disease and cultural dislocation that have resulted from the development of large-scale uranium mining on the Colorado Plateau. Sacrifice continues because, Eichstaedt's work traces uranium mining and... (Continues)

Starwalker

[1989]
Album: Coincidence and Likely Stories [1992]

..In the 1990s, Buffy created the Cradleboard Teaching Project to link American Indian students with other students online around the world. Traveling now to Indian communities and colleges, the project debunks stereotypes and shares history and culture by way of CD-ROM.

Sharing the concert stage at Dine' College with Trudell, Buffy said she and Trudell were "just puppies," during the takeover of Alcatraz in the 1960s. Yet, they kept struggling; kept surviving.

"We just kept chugging on. We kept coming to Indian country. We didn't worry about the fortune and fame because we went with our sincerity, our hearts, and with our friends."

There was the pain of seeing people hurt, but the movers of the '60s and '70s survived, developed, taught, and shared with old friends the joys of watching children and Indian country grow.

The Times I've Had

[1964]
Album “Broadside Ballads, Vol. 3: The Broadside Singers”, Folkways Records.

“The Broadside Singers” è stato un super-gruppo composto da alcuni dei songwriters che negli anni 60 e 70 furono tra i maggiori contributori della rivista “Broadside Magazine”, tra i quali Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, Pete Seeger, Mark Spoelstra, Patrick Sky, Malvina Reynolds, Bob Dylan e Buffy Sainte-Marie…

In questo brano, l’autore Mark Spoelstra è accompagnato da Phil Ochs, voce e chitarra, e da Pete Seeger, banjo.

“This antiwar song was recorded in a Broadside Singers session with Phil Ochs leading the group. The song was written by Mark Spoelstra, who recalls this as one of his early compositions. He remembered traveling to Ohio for a concert with Rambling Jack Elliott. On the way back, they stopped for refreshments and ran across a group of young men in army fatigues talking about how they could not wait... (Continues)

The Partisan

Buffy Sainte-Marie's version (LP 30 cm Vanguard 519 034, "She Used to Wanna Be a Ballerina") is more "native", wilder than Joan's. As in Marly's original performance, listeners feel as if they are sitting in front a firecamp, with a lonely partisan and her guitar. Buffy brings the whistle back to the beginning and the end of the song, and also makes some changes in the lyrics.

My Country 'Tis Of Thy People You're Dying

(1966)

"My Country 'Tis of Thy People You're Dying" is Buffy Sainte-Marie's statement-in-song about Indian affairs.

"My point in the song is that the American people haven't been given a fair share at learning the true history of the American Indian. They know neither the state of poverty that the Indians are in now nor how it got to be that way. I try to tell the side of the story that's left out of the history books, that can only be found in the documents, the archives and in the memories of the Indians themselves."

Nat Hentoff, liner notes for Buffy Sainte-Marie, Little Wheel Spin And Spin, 1966
