Elliott Johnson - Tohono O'Odham fiddler

We visited Elliott Johnson on the Tohono O'Odham reservation a number of times in his village of Cobabi. He taught us  many of the tunes that he had learned from his family and  other tribal musicians. Their music goes back over two hundred years  and has had a double fiddle tradition that whole time.
