Native American Band: Brulé live in concert

Saturday, September 12th 2015 - 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
at The Paramount Theatre
215 East Main Street, Charlottesville, VA 22902

Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH) is delighted to present Brulé, the nationally known, award-winning Native American rock/cultural music group, for its only announced public appearance on the east coast during its 2015-2016 national tour. The Paramount performance will be $12 in advance, $15 at the door, available at The Paramount box office starting next week. Both events are open to the public. Hailing from South Dakota, Brulé thrills audiences with a fusion of cultural rock, traditional sound, and theatrical dance. Now in their 15th season, their performances carry the same contagious excitement as Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Celtic Thunder, and Riverdance. Brulé’s electrifying show includes a five-piece rock ensemble with traditional Native American instrumentation, paired with one of the top U.S. Native American dance troupes. The musical journey of Brulé’s founder, Paul LaRoche, adds an important message about cultural reconciliation and healing. The result is Native America meets Pink Floyd in a spectacular stage production of sight, sound, and soul. “This is one of those transformative experiences demonstrating that Native people are still here, a vibrant part of the American present as well as the past, with insights to share about our connections to others, to the land, and to other living things around us,” said Karenne Wood (Monacan), director of Virginia Indian Programs at VFH. “We’re hoping people will take away a new appreciation of the power of music to cross cultures and bring healing to our world.”
