ekoh - Live Demonstration at the Arts Guild

ekoh, a new Member Artist, will be here live to give a demonstration and talk about his work. Here is what ekoh has to say about his experience and philosophy:"I went to college in Paris, France, but not to learn art: I majored in literature and philosophy, and moved on to psychology, specializing in art therapy. While I was at it, why not sneak into the evening live figure sessions in the city’s renown art schools! I am self-taught, but I did benefit from 15 years living in France, steeped in a millennium of artistic "savoir-faire", Latin passion and blunt critical verve. Combining the flower of craftsmanship, the water of free spirit and the heat of creative fire is how I bake my daily bread, and I enjoy sharing it."

American Indian Music: Even More Than Drums and Flutes

Café Regis will host the Humanities Montana Speakers Bureau program “American Indian Music: Even More Than Drums and Flutes” with Scott Prinzing on Friday evening, January 9, 2015. The program will be at Café Regis, a local community diner and gathering place, at 7pm. The presentation is free and open to the public. Partial funding for the Speakers Bureau program is provided by a legislative grant from Montana’s Cultural Trust and from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Many Montanans associate American Indian music solely with powwow drumming or the Native American flute. Varieties of both of these musical forms are important to Indians all across America. However, Indians have also contributed to American music in virtually every genre, including traditions often associated with distinctly non-Indian ethnic groups, like rap, reggae, and country western. Prinzing looks at the contributions of American Indian musicians to the development of contemporary popular music, and explores a broad spectrum of music by American Indian individuals in genres ranging from blues to folk, country to gospel, and heavy metal to hip-hop.
