Predestination Brought Into Focus: This Is Not John Calvin's Predestination
AuthorHouse, 2003 M11 28 - 124 pages
From the swamp of the Everglades to the deserts of Santa Fe and the concrete canyons of Manhattan, the heartfelt music of Native America is getting off the reservation and into the mainstream of America.
But how can a culture that many think of as dead or merely history make its presence felt in the complex and competitive world of modern American music?
In these pages are visions of some of the major Native American players, artists, musicians, activists, and singers as diverse as Bill Miller, Rita Coolidge, Joey Ramone, John Trudell, Hank Williams III and Wayne Newton.
There are profiles of festivals, award shows, and songwriters in places as peaceful as the Smoky Mountains and as glitzy as the Las Vegas strip.
Native American music: It's not just for powwows anymore.
