Red and Black Bluez-- Rez Style

Red and Black Bluez-- Rez Style is the topic of discussion on Talking Feather Radio. We unearth the hidden history of the African and Native cross cultural blues connection with singer, songwriter and pianist Murray Porter and Aboriginal activist and producer, Elaine Bomberry. Murray Porter is Mohawk born and raised on the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory in southern Ontario. Murray says "He's a red man, singing the black mans' blues, living in a white man's world." (Lyrics from his song "Colours"). Through his blues he tells the Aboriginal side of history with a mixture of country, blues and humor. Elaine Bomberry is also from Six Nations on the Grand River. She is a freelance Aboriginal arts activist/promoter/radio producer. Elaine has been the driving force behind Rez Bluez TV which showcases Native talent from Canada and the US. She produced a major 3 hour radio documentary series called "The Aboriginal Music Experience" on Aboriginal music throughout the world.
