Waila music (sometimes known as Chicken scratch music) is a kind of dance music developed by the Tohono O’odham people. The genre evolved out of acoustic fiddle bands in southern Arizona, in the Sonoran desert. The band plays European and Mexican tunes, in styles that include the polka, schottisch and mazurka.
