ATHENS, Ohio (Nov. 2, 2005) -- Ulali, First Nations Women A Cappella Trio, will perform at Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium on Monday, Nov. 7, at 7:30 p.m.
Ulali's live performances address Native struggles and accomplishments in an energetic, informative, and educational style. They are known for their unusual harmonies and wide vocal and musical range accompanied by drums, rattles and stomping.
The group created a new genre of "Native American" music inspired by other Native women's group and based on their own sound using Southeast Choral singing of pre-blues and gospel and pre-Columbian music before the national borders were formed. Ulali's singers use their strong traditional roots and personal contemporary styles as a foundation for their music. Ulali was featured in the soundtrack of the Miramax film, "Smoke Signals" and have opened for and performed with the Indigo Girls.
The Office of Multicultural Programs, Lindley Cultural Center, the Black Student Cultural Programming Board and the Native People's Awareness Coalition are sponsoring this event. Admission is free with a student ID and $5 for others. Tickets can be purchased at the Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium Ticket Office from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or by calling 593-1780.
If you have questions, please call 593-4027.
