Lakota Music Project

South Dakota's annual Governor's Conference on Tourism wrapped up last night with an awards banquet and a great performance of the "Lakota Music Project" by the South Dakota Symphony's Chamber Orchestra and the Porcupine Singers.

My photos of the Badlands and Black Hills were projected on three giant screens as the combined musical groups presented a blend of tribal drums, traditional Lakota singing and symphonic instruments.

I was proud to provide a backdrop for the fantastic performance.

For more information on the Lakota Music Project and to purchase a DVD of one of their performances, visit South Dakota Public Television.
