Voice: Douglas Good Feather
Flute: Keven Locke
The Voice & Flute of a Nation

Five years in the making, this beautiful album comes straight from the heart of Lakota culture. This album celebrates love in all its joys and woes through a genre of song called wiílowa? ("serenades" or "songs of women"). It brings together archival recordings of some of the last keepers of these songs with masterful flute work by Kevin Locke and contemporary vocals by Douglas Good Feather. Wiílowa? flourished in the pre-reservation period when they were taught as part of the art of traditional subsistence. Although the social context that gave rise to wiílowa? has disappeared, their entertainment value has persevered, and the emotions they sing of are timeless gifts of the Plains.
