Anthology of North American Indian and Eskimo Music

Anthology of North American Indian and Eskimo Music

This extensive collection of Native American music contains songs from across the North American continent: from the Plains Cree to the Inuit in the Arctic, from Northwest Coast Potlatch music to the sounds of the Southeastern Seminoles. Compiled from earlier Folkways recordings by anthropologist Michael I. Asch, the anthology focuses on the function rather than the form of Native American music. The 50 songs center on social themes such as courting, grieving, hunting, and religious ceremony, and represent the utilitarian musical tradition of Amerindian peoples.

EN ESPAÑOL

Esta amplia colección de música nativa contiene canciones que atraviesan el continente norteamericano: de los Llanos Cree a los esquimales en el Ártico, desde la música de la Costa noroeste de Potlatch a los sonidos de los seminoles del sudeste.

Compilado de las primeras grabaciones Folkways por el antropólogo Michael I. Asch, la antología se centra en la función más que en la forma de la música nativa norteamericana.

Las cincuenta canciones se concentran en temas sociales como el cortejo, el duelo, la caza y la ceremonia religiosa, representan la utilidad de la tradición musical de los pueblos amerindios.
