North America's indigenous population has a diverse and vibrant musical culture which stretches back thousands of years and is deeply grounded yet evolving as it encounters new influences. This Rough Guide to Native America navigates the expansive scene from the hauntingly beautiful flute of Carlos Nakai and driving pow wow of Blackfire to the innovative sounds of Pura Fé, Casper Loma Da-Wa and Asani.
This Rough Guide is unique in that it showcases the whole Native American scene, from traditional vibes to experimental explorations. It carefully considers the music that rise steadily out of Native American communities as members continue to reaffirm their culture via the potent musical traditions they have inherited.
The bonus album is contributed by none other than Pura Fé, founding member of the renowned ensemble Ulali and recipient of a prestigious 'Nammy' (Native American Music Award). Fé's music blends together heady blues and Native American vocal music into one marvellously moody mix.
