Most of the Native American music being released lately seems to be pow wow and new agey flute tunes. Rose Red Elk (Red Feather Woman) goes in a completely different direction. She is an enrolled member of the Lakota/Assiniboine tribes and specializes in fascinating spoken word recordings. Some of her songs are original, inspired by her ancient culture. The other material she uses are compelling traditional stories, told to her by her father and grandfather.
The musical influences on her CDs range from folk rock to classical, using instruments that range from electric guitar to cello.
The CD The Keepers of the Earth won the 2006 Native American Music Award for spoken word. It features renowned American Indian flutist Mary Youngblood.
Rose Red Elk talks about her proud nation and shares her stories with children and adults at schools, churches, museums, theaters, universities, and festivals throughout the U.S. and Europe.
