The Artful Living Experience

Collection: Coyote Tales Music

One Man's Tale. Frederick Aragón is a unique yet common man of Southwestern descent, with Navajo, and Hispanic, heritage coursing through his veins—and influencing his art. His stories, told in music that embraces the soul, make us reflect on our decisions and how they affect the lives around us. For more than a decade, he made his living as a third-generation railroader, a western tradition with its own culture.

He never stopped pursuing his art, however, and his work as an illustrator led to his position as a designer with a leading U.S. educational software company. Taos, New Mexico, became the home of his next great adventure. In 1998, while promoting his advertising agency at a chamber of commerce mixer, he picked up a Native American flute for the first time. He took to it like a red-tailed hawk to the breeze, and began a new journey. His first CD, "Coyote Tales," is recommended listening for those embarking on a journey into the Southwest and themselves. Aragón's "Coyote Tales" centers around the coyote and his environment. Before the Native American, Spanish, and Anglos settlers, the animals reigned over this land. Coyote, with his powers, is both a guide and a mirror. Much like the rest of us, Coyote is by no means a perfect creature. His adventures test our sense of right and wrong, and often illuminate how the best-laid plans can come back to haunt us. Coyote encounters friends, enemies, opportunities, and dilemmas, and he doesn't always make the best choices. But "best" is in the eye of the beholder, and wisdom is a window that isn't always wide enough to crawl through.
