“Embracing Duality: Modern Indigenous Culture”

singer on stage with an indigenous instrumentIn partnership with electronic music pioneers The Halluci Nation, R&B artist Martha Redbone, and performance artist Ty Defoe, The Kennedy Center explores the impact and evolution of indigenous performing arts cultures.

In taking influence from a diversity of Nations, cultures, languages, philosophies, spiritual traditions, peoples, and practices rooted in indigenous cultures, contemporary artists across genres have infused indigenous elements, influences and rhythms into Indie Pop, Roots, R&B, Electronic, and beyond.

Featuring conversations and personal anecdotes, these artists delve into the subtle and complex representation of the contemporary Indigenous experience. Through powerful and uplifting performances across the Kennedy Center campus, we tell the story and offer a platform to artists who continue to celebrate and carry forward their traditions in unique and distinct ways.
