Join us for a unique performance by Native American musician and artist Ed Kabotie. Kabotie is from the Hopi village of Shungopavi and the Tewa village of Khap’o Owinge, Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico. His culture is the greatest inspiration of his unique style of music, as he seeks to express the "virtues, vices and values" of his people. By mixing his languages (Hopi, Tewa and English), genres, and instrumentation, Kabotie creates powerful music that speak to the protection of the environment, the sacredness of water, and social justice issues facing his tribe and other Native Americans in the Southwestern United States. Outside of his Hopi and Tewa roots, Kabotie finds most inspiring the musical talents of the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley and the Wailers, and Metallica. In his youth, Kabotie played the drums in rock bands, but studied the guitar as a songwriting instrument. His "One Man Jam" project incorporates electronic looping technology to create a full band sound – including drums, acoustic guitar, bass, Native American flute, harmonica, and vocals in one performance!
