The University of Nebraska at Kearney will present Ulali(you-lolli), a Native American acapella trio at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 10, at the UNK Fine Arts Recital Hall. The concert is free and open to the public.
Ulali, features, Soni, Apache/Mayan, Pura Fe and Jennifer both Tuscarora. These singers deliver what has been described as “a mystical and sweeping sound that evolves from blending a variety of traditional and contemporary indigenous music of the Americans.”
American audiences got their first taste of Ulali when they appeared on the soundtrack for the Turner documentary series The Native Americans and subsequently had two of the songs, including contemporary Mahk Jchi featured on the album titled, Robbie Robertson and the Road Ensemble.
This presentation is made possible by the support of the Nebraska Humanities Council through a grant written by Dr. John Anderson of the UNK political science department and Phyllis Harris of the UNK Office of Multicultural Affairs.
Additional support for Ulali is provided by the Student Kouncil of Intertribal Nations (SKINS), OMA, Office of Sponsored Programs, Multicultural Recruitment Initiative, Office of Admissions, Locke & Key Society, College of Fine Arts and Humanities, the College of Natural and Social Sciences, Department of Political Science, Department of English and the Honors program.
Ulali is one of more than 55 grants funded in 2003 by the Nebraska Humanities Council.
