    Native American/First Nation music recommendations

    Really impressed with the Olympics opening and wondering if anyone had any good recommendations. Probably prefer something traditional.

    Thanks in advance.

    Anything by Gabby or Keola Beamer will do the job.

    I listen to a lot of Sonny Chillingsworth, Ledward Kaapana, Dennis David Kahekilimamaoikalanikeha Kamakahi (gotta love that name) as well as Ray Kane, Ozzie Kotani and Leonard Kwan.

    Hapa, the Peter Moon Band and Sunday Manoa are probably a little more modern than you are looking for.

    My brother swears by Keali`i Reichel.

    And if you're into "non-traditional" Native American music, check out Indigenous.

    Look up Redsun too.

    I remember hearing an american indian talk about history and what was left on the range after a buffalo was killed. They said, "The grass in the stomach, everything else we used."

    good question. i haven't found the music to be very accessible.

    other forms of such as art, totems, stories, drawings are deep, rich, and creative.

    With a southwest flair, I like Ah Nee Mah, 'Ancient Voices', the lead track 'Ceremony', you'll hear in just about any western National Park gift shop and for good reason. Another one I have is Canyon Trilogy by R. Carlos Nakai. A bit more modern mixed in is John Huling, 'Mesa Sunrise'. All on Amazon.
