Illuminations, released in 1969, is the sixth album by Buffy Sainte-Marie. Though most of the tracks did away with the backing she had used on her previous two albums, Illuminations had a completely different sound from anything she had previously done. From a basis of vocals and acoustic guitar, Sainte-Marie and producer Maynard Solomon used electronic synthesisers to create a sound that was much more experimental music than folk.

Sainte-Marie was orphaned, spent her adolescence in Massachusetts, and was reunited with her Cree family in Saskatchewan, Canada, as a young adult. She’s since become the closest thing this country has to a mainstream celebrity ambassador of Native American culture. She has sung about Native American rights (especially in Now That the Buffalo’s Gone, a song about cultural genocide on her first album) and been an educator and activist around issues of poverty, environmentalism, and, perhaps most famously, peace. Illuminations is truly strange-sci-fi in sound, mystical in theme, weird and charming throughout-and if there is a blueprint to a Buffy album, it might be found in this unexpected work. Sainte-Marie, wearing feathers in her hair, spoke with Vogue. com from the garden of a Chelsea hotel in New York City about her new album and a lifetime of freedom.
