Of Note

Dr. Louis W. Ballard is the acknowledged father of Native American composition. A member of the Quapaw and Cherokee nations, Ballard believed that Native music had to stand on its own without following the styles of other composers. “It is not enough to acknowledge that Native American Indian music is merely different from other music,” he said. “What is needed in America is an awakening and reorienting of our total spiritual and cultural perspectives to embrace, understand, and learn from the Aboriginal American and what motivates his musical and artistic impulses.”

Harpist and composer Alfredo Rolando Ortiz plays the Paraguayan harp, which differs from most other harps. Its unique design produces a magnificent tone and volume, and the string tension is lower than in many other harps, allowing a light and relaxed style of playing. This harp is also played with the fingernails, while the right thumb is used for percussive, rhythmic “thumping” on the bass string
