Travis Edmonson Songs M - N




MALAGUENA SALEROSA


MARIA CRISTINA

This song, released by Bud & Travis as a single, is famous for the way they incorporated the names of other leading folk groups (including “comments” in Spanish).

Maria Cristina is a Cuban song written by composer Nico Saquito.  It was originally performed by a group called Los Guaracheros De Oriente. David Ruiz del Vizo writes, “I had heard that song going back to my childhood when my grandfather had a radio program in Cuba.  About 20 or so years later, I bought the Kingston Trio album "Make Way" which had a song titled "En El Agua".  When I played it I said, "Dang, that's Maria Cristina!"  A little later, I got “Perspective on Bud & Travis” that had their version on it.  Gotta say, I like theirs better than the KT.”

MEXICAN WEDDING DANCE (see LA BAMBA)

MICHAELA

If you thought that “La Bamba” was Travis Edmonson singing at his fastest, this live performance of the folk song “Michaela” will dazzle still further.


MOONBABIES AND SUNFLOWERS

For total infectiousness, there is almost no Travis Edmonson song which can match this one from his “Arizona Collection.”  If you can stay still or remain solemn during this one, you may have died without knowing it.


NO ME QUIERAS TANTO

Quite easily one of the most dramatic tracks recorded by Bud & Travis, “No Me Quieras Tanto” evokes as much romance as any of the captivating boleros which the country of Mexico has produced.

Literally, “ay amor ja no me quieres tanto,” says “oh my love, do not love me so much.”For Travis Edmonson, the words are especially beautiful, and he feels that a translation of the Spanish would surely reveal “the depth of sentimentality in Mexican music,” something he feels North Americans need to know.

However, even for non Spanish speakers, the duo's emotive rendition on “The Bud & Travis Latin Album” (now on CD) conveys so much density of feeling as to make a translation almost unnecessary.


NOCHE DE RONDA

This serenade of  a suitor pining away for his love was featured on “The Latin Album,” and a favorite of the ladies in the residences  of the University of Arizona when Travis Edmonson and Roger Smith sang to them from the shadows outside their dorms.
