Firehouse Sessions – Ed Kabotie


Ed Kabotie joins us for an exclusive Firehouse Session!

Ed Kabotie traveled to Bloomington, Indiana in honor of Native American Heritage Month this past November. He is from the Hopi village of Shungopavi in northern Arizona, and the Tewa village of Khap’o Owinge – Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico. Kabotie’s music incorporates important messages including the protection of the environment and the sacredness of the land. “We feel we were given the land as
trustees…It’s everybody’s responsibility to take care of it and to live life in a balanced way in harmony.”

It is not often that one encounters a Native American musician like Kabotie, who sings in 3 different languages – Hopi, Tewa and English. By incorporating “looping” technology, Kabotie creates electroacoustic Native American music with his guitar and flute that is grounded in his heritage “born out of meditations,” but is also influenced by rock and reggae. He is a solo artist, but also plays vocals/guitar for Los Coyotes or Tha Yoties (a rock/reggae trio based in Flagstaff, Arizona), vocals/guitar for Twin Rivers (a Nu-Native band based out of Sante Fe, New Mexico), and the drums for Summit Dub Squad (A Reggae/Hip-hop band based in Flagstaff, Arizona). “Loloma” is from his album Origins, and “Don’t Worry be Hopi” is from his new album Shadowed by the Mountain.
