Friday, December 3,2010 from 3:30pm until ??…we at Watershed Books are excited to host local artist,modern native flautist, keyboardist, bassist, composer, producer, recording artist and storyteller ,Kevin Village Stone-Kiwamura.
Being of Cherokee and Japanese ancestry . Kevin performs and records original instrumental compositions of Native American and Ecuadorian flutes over modern and traditional instruments. His work also includes the renowned “Whispering Light” series of meditation music CDs that are widely popular.
A unique flavor of Kevin’s music is that he writes and arranges it all himself and plays every instrument on the recordings. “I do not consider myself to be a traditional Native flute player, although I know many traditional songs … I play for myself and ceremony…the music I perform is a type of cross-cultural renaissance from inside me that uses every musical element I have learned and experienced.”
Kevin also performs native flute demonstrations, conducts both Native American and Japanese cultural education presentations, and performs multi-tribal traditional storytelling in various public, private, charities and museums throughout Northern California
Please join Watershed Books and Kevin Village Stone-Kiwamura on Friday Afternoon, December 3rd for a very special event. Kevin’s recording will be available for sale. Complimentary refreshments.
