Video From the Hood

Recorded 3/5/08 @ Tractor Tavern

Pura Fe & Danny Godinez recorded at the Tractor Tavern in the Ballard Neighborhood of Seattle.

Pura Fe has a style that harkens back to Janis Joplin and Tracy Nelson of Mother Earth. There is a strong Southern Roots influence with some North American Indigenous Culture added to the mix. Pura played an awesome bottle neck guitar as well.

Danny Godinez  is an extraordinary guitar player. He utilizes looping technology to accompany himself, using the guitar as a percussion instrument, a rhythm and lead instrument. You would guess there were three or four people on stage not just two.
