 Percussionist, educator, and author of The Band: Pioneers of Americana Music (2014), Heartbeat, Warble, and the Electric Powwow: American Indian Music (2016), and Bluegrass, Newgrass, Old-time, and Americana Music (May 2018), Craig Harris leads this exciting multimedia and participatory celebration of Indigenous music. Combining archival recordings, video, informative storytelling, and collective music-making, this stereotype-defying programs 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.
