Relevant Tones has the honor and privilege to present this two part series on the music from South Dakota Symphony Orchestra and their Lakota Music Project. This project is a powerful collaboration between native Lakota music and the symphony orchestra.
Joined on the interview is Music Director Delta David Gier and special soloist Bryan Akipa. Bryan Akipa is a specialist in the natural wood flute which is prominently featured in many of the tracks in this first part.
Please enjoy the music, anecdotes, and friendships that have been developed between the native Lakota population and the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra and stay tuned for part two!
