From the recording "ANCIENT CALIFORNIA"
I researched Ancient Californian music for many years, then reconstructed the majority of their instruments with the same materials and saw that using the ancient instruments was and is disappearing...The vast majority use only gourd rattles. I created my music from my analysis of the melodic content of existing native Californian music.
I also created lesson plans on teaching about the ancient indigenous music as well as creating an INSTRUMENT MAKING WORKSHOP where Grades 3 to Adults can make, decorate with native CA art, play and take home a beautiful CLAPPER STICK.
