Contrary to popular belief, his name doesn't have anything to do with Tewa Pueblo

Show Notes

David Adrian Nunez Brenes, Cherokee and Purhepecha, grew up in various places throughout Southern California. Because of his family’s frequent moves he found it difficult to make friends, and so like many others, he turned to music. Since recording as The Tewa (Cherokee for flying squirrel), he’s become a staple in the underground music scene, both in So Cal and Albuquerque, NM. He frequently collaborates with Mato Wayuhi (music director) on Reservation Dogs and they’re currently gearing up to score an upcoming Major Motion Picture release. D.A. joins me this week to discuss all of this and his latest album, Under the Moonlight. Enjoy!
