Call in to speak with the host
Acoustic guitarist Joseph Strider has covered a lot of musical ground in his career thus far. From boy soprano in school choirs, to playing with a cover band, Strider has spent the years developing his own unique style, a style that fits in no established genre and can best be described as modern Indigenous alternative.
Tonight David Little Eagle and Joseph are joined by Ryan Little Eagle! This young man is destined to show the world just who he is! His music is more than beginning to take shape. Mark my words folks, Ryan Little Eagle is a name you will be hearing more and more of. Ryan is Lakota/Apache mix blood from the Hill Country of Texas. At the age of 1 Ryan was given the Lakota name Wambli Cikala (Little Eagle). Ryan spent most of his early life in San Antonio where he was able to learn the ways of his ancestors from his Grandmother. When Ryan turned 16 he met a Hidatsa Elder that went by the name Mato. From there Ryan started to get involved in the local Pow Wows. At the Powwow in Bandera, Texas, Ryan picked up a Harjo cane flute. He played this flute as if he had been playing for years. Ryan is a natural with the flute.
It's good to talk.
