Chicken Skin Music is the fifth studio album by the American musician Ry Cooder. This
album is a fusion of all kinds of music, from bolero rhythms, slack key
guitars to gospel tunes. The early landmark in his way to popularise
roots music from both North and Central America is the equivalent of the
Buena Vista Social Club, which was released 20 years later. Besides his
standard backing band (Jim Keltner, Milt Holland, Chris Ethridge, and
George Bohannon) he collaborated with two eminent Hawaiian musicians,
Gabby Pahinui (steel guitar) and Atta Isaacs (slack-key guitar), and
Norteño musician Flaco Jimenez. He's also looking way into the past by
covering Leadbelly's “Goodnight Irene” and “Bourgeois Blues”. World
music at its best in the early days, by combining all his influences and
working together with different musicians.
Legendary American musician Ry Cooder
played together with the worlds greatest artists, such as John Lee
Hooker, The Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, Neil Young, and Eric Clapton.
Cooder is known for his slide guitar work, and was ranked eighth on
