Liberal Palette has done a few semi-official videos for our good friends 3 HatTrio. They call their music “American Desert Music” and their aim is to create a new music which responds to the natural world of their sacred homeland near Zion National Park in Utah.
They also strive to acknowledge the cultural traditions of generations of people who have worked and lived on the deserts of the American southwest. The subject matter of the songs is often desert oriented, sometimes not. Mostly they express the desert experientially from a daily-ness of watching light reflect off of distant mesas and hearing the way sound plays off sheer sandstone cliffs. Then they play music. They don’t over-think it.
