Meet the mystical, mysterious mountain from which Coyote, according to Miwok Indian tradition, created the world. Through close harmony vocals, guitar and drum rhythms and recorder solos, meet some of the denizens of the mountain. Kuimba's third CD, is filled with fun, upbeat, as well as contemplative music. This EP length recording (26 minutes) commemorates Mount Diablo, which is located in near San Francisco, California.

This re-issue of the CD is packed with changes. For starters, a whole new dynamic version of the title track. In addition, Mount Diablo has new vocals and vocal harmonies on some tracks, and added background instruments. It has also been newly REMASTERED.
