Final-Intrument-Pic

We celebrate the Centennial of the National Park Service with “Puhutawi,” a new genre of Hopi music, taking the power and sophistication of Hopi traditional music and expanding its sonic possibilities via fusion with contemporary chamber music. Puhutawi composers Clark Tenakhongva, NAMMY-nominated creator of traditional Hopi ceremonial music, Hopi composer Trevor Reed collaborate in this new concert-length work which pays homage to the Grand Canyon – their ancestral homeland and now one of America’s most visited National Parks.

Based on a series of provocative songs composed by Tenakhongva in Hopi ceremonial style, re-interpreted and developed collaboratively by the two composers for a concert audience, “Puhutawi” entices the audience to listen to the environmental and spiritual forces that bring life and motion to the Grand Canyon.

“Puhutawi” will be complemented by a performance of Barber’s Adagio for Strings
