Story about the Song | Larry Littlebird
00:00 / 03:05

The beautiful songs and stories of my Keres people do not easily translate into simple English words.  Drum sounds, singing vocables and Keres words in our songs are nuanced with layers of depth and meaning rooted in our ages-old oral tradition culture. Some of these songs are so epic they translate into an entire origin story experience.
