Arboretum concert series continues with
Ulali June 15
Ulali First Nations
Women Acapella Trio will perform on the Amphitheater Stage at
the Arboretum on Thursday, June 15. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
and the show begins at 6:30 p.m. The concert is the second in
the Arboretum's Third
Thursday Music Series.
Founded over 15 years ago, Ulali was the first Native women's
group to create its own sound from traditional roots and personal
contemporary styles. Ulali's sound encompasses an array of indigenous
music including Southeast choral singing (pre-blues and gospel)
and pre-Columbian (before the borders) music. With their beautiful
yearning and powerful voices, they drum, rattle, and stomp.
Their performances address Native struggles and accomplishments.
Other performers in the series include the Tish Hinojosa Trio
on July 20, Sista Monica on August 17, Toshi Reagon on September
21, and The Lalo Guerrero Tribute Concert on October 19. Check
web site for schedules, ticket sales, and concert information.
