We are excited to share that Robert Mirabal will be joining us. Robert is a Pueblo Native American flute player and maker from Taos Pueblo, New Mexico. He began making flutes at the age of 19, and his flutes are world renowned. Robert performs world wide, sharing flute songs, tribal rock and writings/storytelling. He resides on Taos Pueblo and participates in the traditional ways and rituals of his people. Aside from his artistic talents Robert is a father and a farmer.
Robert brings the sounds and traditional culture of his people to share with Sarasota for a unique event we will all remember.
Welcome back Red Boys who are our host drum this year. We watched these guys grow up on the powwow circuit and are honored to have them as they represent the next generation of traditional drummers, dancers and cultural educators.
We also have Anthony Aleman who has been playing and hand-crafting Yadaki(digeridoo) for over 13 years, and has an incredible passion for the history and deep traditions behind what many experts consider to be the oldest instrument in the world–the didgeridoo.”
Enjoy finding authentic, handmade, one-of-a-kind fine arts and crafts, paintings, pottery, jewelry, sculpture, bead work and leather work, along with traditional dancing, singing, drumming, story telling and Native American food.
This festival will continue to be a tribute to the extraordinary life of artist (the late) Rex A. Begaye, its founder. His remarkable gifts as an painter and educator of Native American culture were the inspiration for this event focused on bringing authentic Native American culture to Sarasota.
