Licka Ma Leg

Great Basin tribes, such as the Ute, Shoshoni and Painte, live/lived mainly in the U.S. Southwestern deserts of Utah and Nevada. Their music is relatively simple, with short and straightforward melodies placed within a small vocal range that are often repeated in pairs. In this video we hear Judy Trejo perfom a Paiute/Shoshone “circle dance” song, “Licka ma leg.”
