Natives play for music merchants

Native music to premiere at music merchant event

All Native show to premier at NAMM 2009 tomorrowTomorrow actor, musician and motivational speaker Shawn Michael Perry will team up with Hip-Hop artist Gabriel Yaiva and the organization Native Movement to premier his All That Culture: Music of the Americas and First Nations Project to coincide with the National Association of Music Merchants 2009 event in Anaheim, Calif.

Yaiva, who directs the Peace and Balance: Educating and Healing Through Music Project of Native Movement, finds the opportunity exciting.

"This is the first sponsorship of an all-Native line up. This opportunity will expose the Native music scene into the world of high end merchants in the music business--companies that manufacture guitars, amps and turn tables--all the way through people who create parts for the instruments," Yaiva said.
