Indigenous Rock n Roll

Posted on Jul 24, 2013
by Guildenstern

5 out of 5

Fringe is known for its exotic acts, from belly dance fusion to dancers from India, but Brings Plenty offers something new blended with something old and adds a whole new exotic dimension to Fringe. This is an hour of Native American music, dance, stories, feathers, hula hoops, and hair that gives ancient indigenous traditions a contemporary twist.

It's led by a guy named Moe, a Lakota who grew up on a South Dakota reservation. His ridiculously long hair flies in the wind as he beats the drum and tells his stories. He's accompanied by electric guitars and keyboards, and the music is contemporary but firmly rooted in traditional music. There's also some excellent fluting by Terry Whetstone, who we were told won the Indigenous People's Choice Award. There's just enough variety to keep things interesting, although I kept waiting for them to cut loose and rock out - which they finally did at the end.

The dancers in full regalia were great to watch. I haven't seen anything like this since I was a kid on vacation out west. It should be a brand new experience for a lot of Fringe goers, espcially kids. There's also a nice merchandise table out front with lots of jewelry and CDs and stuff. Very entertaining.
