Heartbeat: A Native American Musical Experience
Percussionist, educator,and the author of Heartbeat, Warble, and the Electric Powwow: American Indian Music (University of Oklahoma Press, May 2016), Craig Harris leads this exciting multimedia, participatory, and stereotype-defying celebration of American Indian music. Combining archival recordings, film, historic storytelling, and collective music-making, this 90-minute program ties together Standing Rock, Wounded Knee, and the Trail of Tears and spans from the "heartbeat" of powwow drums and the “warble” of wooden flutes to the electrifying sounds of Native infused rock, jazz, reggae, country music, blues, hip-hip, and electronic dance music.
