NIC presents Native American women's musical group ‘Ulali'
The three-woman musical group Ulali, which combines the sounds of traditional Native American song and contemporary music, will perform from noon to 2 p.m. Thursday, March 17 in the Lake Coeur d'Alene Room of North Idaho College's Edminster Student Union Building
Ulali features Pura Fe and Jennifer of the Tuscarora Tribe and Soni who is Mayan, Apache and Yaqui. The group's sound encompasses an array of indigenous music including southeastern choral singing and pre-Columbian music and the group often drums, rattles and stomps
Breaking the stereotypes of Native American women, Ulali's performances are political and humorous, often addressing cultural struggles as well as accomplishments.
Ulali was featured on the soundtrack for the locally-filmed Miramax film based on the Sherman Alexie novel “Smoke Signals.”
The event is sponsored by the NIC Diversity Events Committee.
The performance is free and open to the public.
