Indian Market & Festival | Twin Rivers

by Jaq Nigg, Eiteljorg festivals and events manager | Jun 16, 2015

As Indian Market and Festival draws near, we’d like to tell you about some of the things we’re extra excited about.

#1: The 1491s

 #2: Ready to dance!

Twin Rivers is a four piece group infusing reggae, rock, jazz and traditional Native voices to create a positive sound for the contemporary ear.

Musicians Adrian Wall and Ed Kabotie have known each other since their early teens. Over the years, they have fostered a friendship that is embodied in the music of their band, Twin Rivers. The winsome blend of traditional and contemporary vocals combined with beautifully melodic songs create a refreshingly genuine expression by these Pueblo artists.

The group has developed a conscious sense of environment that remains prominent in their music. Lead singer Ed Kabotie develops lyrics derived from his traditional Hopi and Tewa heritage. Jemez Pueblo flutist and guitarist Adrian Wall lays down the melody. Drummer Ehren Kee Natay (Navajo/Cherokee) and bassist, Rylan Kabotie (Jicarilla Apache) provide the drive and groove. The group collectively brings together multiple Native cultural identities to provide songs that accept the philosophy that we are all distinct, but connected as one.
