Cabin Fever Series
An Introduction to American Indian Music
Saturday, Feb. 11, 2 PM at the East Hampton Library, 105 Main St #1, East Hampton, CT
Presenter is percussionist/educator Craig Harris who will present a multi-media and participatory program based on his book Heartbeat, Warble, and the Electric Powwow (University of Oklahoma Press, May 2016). The hour-long program explores in depth the vibrant soundscape of Native North America from the “heartbeat” of intertribal drums and “warble” of Native flutes to contemporary rock, hip-hop, and electronic music. Drawing on more than one hundred interviews with musicians, producers, ethnographers, and record-label owners, author, photographer, and musician Craig Harris conjures an aural tapestry in which powwow drums and end-blown woodwinds resound alongside operatic and symphonic strains, jazz and reggae, country music, and blues.
