American Indian Music

American Indian Music: Even More Than Drums and Flutes

Time: Friday, July 28th at 8:00pm

Location: Outdoor Amphitheatre at Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park

 

(Whitehall, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) announced the tenth edition of its Friday Evening programs will be held this Friday, July 28th from 8 to 9pm.

 

Many Montanans associate American Indian music solely with powwow drumming or the Native American flute. However, Indians have also contributed to American music in virtually every genre, including traditions often associated with distinctly non-Indian ethnic groups, like rap, reggae, and country western.

 

As director of the MusEco Media and Education Project, Scott Prinzing looks at the contributions of American Indian musicians to the development of contemporary popular music, and explores a broad spectrum of music by American Indian individuals in genres ranging from blues to folk, country to gospel, and heavy metal to hip-hop.
