ah ha..this is Native American Indian (not from East India)

Native American Music 1

Native American Music 2

I think this is Navajo from near Taos New Mexico,
set in Monument Valley, Utah.

He does beautiful music, Skarpi. I've always loved his stuff.

One of my very favourite NDN (Indian) artists is Keith Secola and Wild Band of Indians. Here's his official website: CLICK.

If you don't mind hard rock, NDN style, here's a video of him and the band doing his song, NDN CARS the "unofficial" anthem of Native Americans.

Keith Secola is great! I also recommend Bill Miller. Here's Reservation Road.

The Beat Goes On from our ancestral drums. Here's a tribute to America's political prisoner, Leonard Peltier, from Native rapper, Buggin Malone.

Mirabal appears to be Loreena McKennit with feathers.

Aren't there any YouTubes of American Indian music that doesn't pretend the synth predates Columbus?

Go to a pow-wow. A real one. Some of the Drums are truly excellent!

om, yes! That's where I learned of Keith Secola. There are a lot of scenes from the movie on youtube. There are also many other excellent books by Alexie. He is one of my fav. authors.

Sure, Jack, you can see trad on youtube, just put in "Powwow" in the search, but expecting no synth is kind of like thinking "they" all belong on the Rez and forget about any modcons. Your question implies "Native American Music = Drums & Chants, only."

Having said that, yes, Rapaire, they are! We've been going to "real" ones for over thirty years and even have some rare recordings. I got to meet Floyd Crow Westerman, in person, and hear him sing an impromptu rendition of Custer Died for Your Sins. It was an honour.

I think Floyd Crow Westerman was one of the few Native entertainers booked at the local Indian Casino....those tribal folks have more cowboys than Indians on their stage....pity!

here is some pow wow dancing

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3s9z3IOpH1g

there is a tradition of women wearing a "jingle dress"
The jingles were made from tin can lids, rolled into cones
(often tobacco lids) and they make sounds as the dancers move.

Subject: Lyr Add: OKLAHOMA POW WOW (Buddy Tabor)
From: Ebbie
Date: 15 Apr 10 - 10:07 PM

Buddy Tabor is married to a Navajo, originally from New Mexico. Once they were on tour and came upon some signs promoting a Native American pow wow. On an impulse they decided to go, even though it was not part of his wife's heritage. They were both tremendously moved by the experience and here's the song he wrote about it:

Oklahoma Pow Wow
                      Buddy Tabor, Juneau, Alaska
Pow wows, oil wells, the beat of a drum
Dancers in a circle, circle 'neath the setting sun
Parking lot, pickup truck, a paint, a mustang mare
Cowboy hats and eagle feathers join flying everywhere
Fry bread and coffee, buffalo stew
Everybody's talking to friends old and new
Little children running, laughing, playing around
The wisdom of a thousand generations coming down

Have you ever been to Oklahoma
Winding roads and Osage hills
Life is old in Oklahoma
Ancient ways are down there still

Tepees, lodgepoles, buckskin and beads
Choctaw, Seminoles, Cheyenne and Cherokee
Blue sky, red earth, our lives are but a song
Interwoven fabric, to each other we belong
Don't need no watch, no camera, take a picture with your mind
Down in Oklahoma, down in Indian time

Veterans are honored, into the circle they walk
Everybody's praying, now nobody talks
Drummer keeps on singing in a high-pitched prayer
Red tailed hawk keeps dancing fancy circles in the air
Red tailed hawk                  dancing in the wind
Fancy dancing, trying hard to find the end
The end is the beginning, the beginning is just the end
Redtailed hawk keeps dancing fancy circles in the wind
