This month we bring a blend of electronic sound and harmonic voice rhythms to our national talking circle. Verdell Primeaux and Johnny Mike have teamed up once again on the new CD “Road to Peace.” This time they are lending their voices to a more contemporary intermingling of sound–including teaming up with hip-hop artist Twista. Although they’re bringing a new sound into Native America with their songs, both singers fall back on their traditions and cultural understanding as they move through the notes. We invite you to join us as we open our program to their music and story.
Guests: recording artists Johnny Mike (Navajo) and Verdell Primeaux (Oglala Sioux/Ponca)
Break Music: Wiconi (song) Primeaux & Mike (artist) Road to Peace (album)
