Robert Mirabal

The traditional flute music of Native Americans has been fused with rock, folk, hip-hop, African, and techno influences by Robert Mirabal. The result is a sound that the Village Voice described as "ancestral drumming and ritualistic chanting [that] create an intoxicating swirl as they intermingle with contemporary ideas and sounds."

A member of the Taos Pueblo tribe of New Mexico, Mirabal began making traditional Native American flutes at the age of 19. Borrowing money from his grandmother, he recorded a self-titled debut album in 1988. Four years later, he received a New York Dance and Performance Bessie award for the score, "Land," that he composed and performed for Japanese modern dancers Eiko and Koma. In 1996, Mirabal collaborated with Native American singer-songwriter Bill Miller on an album, Native Suite-Chants, Dances and the Remembered Earth. A collection of Mirabal's poetry, prose, and short stories was published as A Skeleton of a Bridge. His flutes have been displayed at the Smithsonian Institute's National Museum. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

I grew up playing at his home with his oldest daughter. Imember the smell, swimming in the river, hanging with the bros, making forts in the willows. When I hear his music, it takes me back to those moments. Being a crazy little native. He visited my mother when she was in the hospital giving birth to me. Backstage at his shows was such a treat. So many great memories all thanks to this man and my father's friendship. A period in my life I'll always cherish. The soundtrack to my childhood.

He came to our school and I volunteered to play on of his flutes with two of my friends. We had a contest where all the girls closed their eyes and clapped for who played it the best. All jokes aside I won. He told me words ill never forget: " You got all the love man!"

My wife and I saw Robert in concert a few years ago in Wilmington, DE after first being introduced to his music through a special on PBS. His live performance was one of the best concerts I've ever attended.

Music From A Painted Cave left me speechless. Performances were spectacular, the music and dancers were beautiful!! It was the first time I saw Robert Mirabal perform at a University campus. I agree, there should be more of his albums here, along with a Native station. Another artist to consider is Ulale, they are a female trio singers...in c r e d i b l e vocalists!!!

I also saw 'Music From A Painted Cave' and thought it was some aof the most wonderful music I had heard. We don't get to listen to many Native musicians here in mid-South Carolina. My 11-yr-old son loves the Native Way.

This is it?! Surprising since he's won so many awards for his other albums as well. I love his music. How can we get more of his music on pandora?
Report as inappropriate
I wish that there were more of his works available on Pandora...he has more albums than just this one! It would be cool to be able to hear some of his live stuff, but I don't know if that was ever pressed.
