Summary "Celebrates 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 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."--Book cover.
Subject Indians of North America -- Music -- History and criticism.
Indian musicians -- United States.
