Three Native Views will be presented in our opener, originally planned for April 2020. Raven Chacon, a Diné (Navajo) composer, created The Journey of the Horizontal People for the Kronos Quartet. You’ll want to get up and dance! Another Kronos-commissioned work invokes a similar impulse. According to South African composer Kevin Volans, “The title White Man Sleeps comes from a moment in nyanga panpipe music where the performers leave off playing their loud pipes ... and dance only to the sound of their ankle rattles, to let the white landowner sleep – for a minute or two.” Michael Foumai’s Flare Up is a five-minute musical inferno inspired by Samoan fire knife dancing!
