Overnight Package An evening of Music & Myth with Robert Mirabal

“…my music is informed by the ceremonial music that I’ve heard all of my life. What I create comes out of my body and soul, in a desire to take care of the spirits of the earth.”—Robert Mirabal

    Robert Mirabal

    Composer, songwriter and musician. Robert Mirabal has won many honors including two-time Native American Artist of the Year, three-time Songwriter of the Year, a 2006 GRAMMY Award for Sacred Ground, and his 2008 GRAMMY Award for Johnny Whitehorse Totemic Flute Chants. Robert’s work blends all of his influences into a musical landscape that conjures up both the historic and contemporary West. Robert lives with his family at the foot of the sacred Taos Mountain. Maintaining a traditional life, keeping the centuries-old customs of the Taos Pueblo people, Robert has been described as a Native American “Renaissance man” – musician, composer, painter, master craftsman, poet, actor, screenwriter, horseman and farmer. His first flute came when he was 18 with money he borrowed from his grandmother. Shortly afterward he had the opportunity to meet Native American flute player R. Carlos Nakai who greatly influenced him. In the years since, Robert has continued the evolution of his flute making and has also become an accomplished novelist, poet, craftsman, composer, dancer, actor, painter, sculptor, concert performer and recording artist. His dozen albums of traditional music, rock and roll, and spoken word present a contemporary view of American Indian life that is unequaled.
