Central European immigrants brought polka music to America in the mid-19th century, but the people of the O'odham Indian Nations in Arizona's Sonora desert have made the mixture of accordians, saxophones and percussion all their own. Taken from the word "baila," which means "dance" in Spanish, Akimel and Tohono people have created "waila."
