Otis Taylor Sings the Reservation Blues

Listen Now

Boulder blues musician Otis Taylor is known for his tough, uncompromising songs about the African-American experience. But for his latest album, My World is Gone, Taylor explores the struggles of Native Americans. The title comes from guitarist Mato Nanji, a member of the Nakota Sioux tribe and leader of the blues-rock band Indigenous. He plays on about half of the songs on My World is Gone. Taylor talks to Ryan Warner.
