Director Trevor Reed will discuss the preliminary results of his work on the Hopi Music Repatriation Project, as well as some ideas for the growth of the Project, on KUYI this morning at 8:30 am MST. Please tune in to 88.1 FM or visit kuyi.net to join the conversation!
In addition to our ongoing commitment to returning Hopi music currently housed in archives and museums across the world, we are also exploring ways these and other musical materials might benefit the Hopi community. Trevor will talk this morning about initial ideas for a Hopi Music Symposium in 2017 to bring together local composers to talk about and share Hopi music. He will also present some of his ideas for community-partnered research to document local creative practices to support future generations of Hopi composers and performers. If you are interested in participating in the Hopi Music Symposium Planning Committee or sharing your ideas about composing, please leave a comment below.
