Danzfolk - Cheyenne IndiansYou know when you are listening to a song and you don’t really know what it is, but you are bobbing your head and grooving along anyway? I hit play on this bad boy, went to different tab and with the memory of a goldfish, totally forgot what I was listening to, but had the same reaction I always do with Danzfolk. The second installment of their “Sandcreek Massacre” series, the duo do it again with another big, bouncy, cinematic tune. Below is the story that is the backdrop for the track, which you can grab for free now.

In 1864, Colonel John Chivington and the Colorado Cavalry massacred the Cheyenne Indians at Sand Creek, Colorado. The causes of the massacre were rooted in the long conflict for control of the Great Plains. During the Civil War, tension began to rise and sporadic violence broke out between Anglos and the Native Americans. After meeting to forge a new peace treaty, the Colorado Cavalry, in what can only be considered an act of treachery, brutally attacked the unsuspecting Cheyenne Indians. Hundreds of men, women and children were murdered, and the village was set on fire. This song tells the story of the brave indians who fought to defend their sacred land.
