Sounds Of Siberia
Concert
Sea of Glass Performance Hall   (click for map location)
Saturday, Mar 14, 2020
Event Begins at 7:30 PM

Internationally renowned throat singer, Nachyn Choreve and virtuoso of the khomus, Yuliyana Krivoshapkina will transport you to the vast expanse of Siberia.  A throat singing workshop is also offered.  Workshop from 2:00pm to 4:00pm and the concert at 7:30pm.  Come to either or both!


The unique music of Sounds of Siberia underscores the power of nature and the timeless connections between humanity and the universe.  Nachyn’s mastery of different styles of throat singing takes listeners to the Taiga and mountain brooks of Tuva in the south of this vast region, while Yuliyana’s artistry on the khomus brings the sounds of the birds, reindeer, and winds of the endless tundra of Yakutia to the north.  As throat singing emerged out of the Tuvan nomadic lifestyle, the khomus (jaw harp) became a linchpin of Yakutian musical culture and the tool of powerful shamans.  When heard together, these two musical styles evoke the grandeur and impermanence of the natural world.


Yuliyana Krivoshapkina is a virtuoso in the art of the khomus, the national instrument of the Sakha Republic.  The khomus functions much like a jaw harp, but with a strikingly expansive range and volume.  Yuliyana’s skill allows her to play across about three octaves.  Winner of the Ethnic Sound category in the Discovery International Music Pop Festival in Varna, Bulgaria, Yuliyana has performed in Korea, France, Germany, Belgium, the United States, Japan, China, Thailand, Holland, Norway, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Azerbaijan, Tatarstan, Bashkortostan, and Turkmenistan.  Her music draws inspiration from the power of nature and the wisdom and traditions of the Yakut people to portray the timeless connection between humanity and the universe.


Nachyn Choreve is a soloist in the Tuvan State Philharmonic and founding member of the Tuvan psychedelic rock band Hartyga.  Nachyn began touring as a professional musician when he was just 16, and as a member of Hartyga he has collaborated with musicians around the world.

FILM: Neither Wolf Nor Dog
Friday, Apr 17, 2020
Event Begins at 7:00 PM

Neither Wolf Nor Dog is a story of Native American history from the inside set on the Lakota Pine Ridge Reservation.  The film is in the midst of the longest first-run theatrical release of any movie in the US in over a decade and is one of the most successful non-Hollywood Native American-themed films ever made.


Adapted from the acclaimed novel by Kent Nerburn, this funny and deeply moving film follows an author who gets sucked into the heart of contemporary Native American life in the sparse lands of the Dakotas by a 95-year-old Lakota elder.  


Kent Nerburn (Christopher Sweeney), a good-hearted, white American family man and writer, receives a mysterious call from a distant Indian reservation regarding an oral history book he made with Red Lake Ojibwe reservation students in northern Minnesota.  Despite misgivings, Kent travels across America’s northern plains to arrive at the bleak, poverty-stricken reservation deep in the high plains of the Dakotas.  The old man, Dan (Dave Bald Eagle), who lives alone in a clapboard shack back in the hills with his only real companions—his dog, a close friend named Grover (Richard Ray Whitman) and his granddaughter, Wenonah (Roseanne Supernault)—interrogates Kent as to his motives for working with Indian people.  Once satisfied he is not a turquoise clad “wannabe” spouting Indian philosophy, Dan recounts the story of American history from the Native point of view.  As the stories pour from Dan, Kent’s understanding of the world is turned upside down.  An inanimate landscape comes alive, and a history he thought he knew is called into question.
