A rich portrait of the community that is Arkansas manifested in song, Our Own Sweet Sounds celebrates the diversity of musical forms and music makers that have graced the state since territorial times. Beginning with the earliest references to Quapaw and Caddo music as first reported by seventeenth-century European explorers and continuing forward to the "bizarrely named grunge bands" who will be stars tomorrow, Robert Cochran traces the music and voices that have enriched the life of the Natural State.
