The black Indian tribes emerged in Louisiana at the end of the IXX century, Joseph Pierre "Big Chief Monk" Boudreaux, born in New Orleans in 1941, is the last of the great chiefs of one of those tribes, the Golden Eagles, who with a musical tradition that has survived to this day, syncopated rhythms, tribal percussions, masks, inherent costumes and sung improvisations, has represented the intrinsic legacy of Creole culture, a term coined by the French colonization of the Louisiana state. Monk Boudreaux joined another great chief Bo Dollis in the band Wild Magnolias in the late sixties, with whom he spent three decades and recorded five albums, until 2001 when he left the group and began his own solo career. After releasing a live album as The Golden Eagles in 1988, he released his first album in 2002 with guitarist Anders Osborne which was followed by three more albums, until reaching this last work "Bloodstains & Teardrops", originated in Kingston (Jamaica ), backed by Jamaican musicians, and finished in New Orleans, conducted by local favorites such as Tab Benoit, Johnny Sansone or Michael Doucet. The oldest form of African music can be found on this album by one of its last exponents in a modern, compelling and superlative way. A living treasure.
