Native American/First Nations Music (Great Basin)


[wpspoiler name=”A Shoshone Flag Song” open=”true” style=”aatw-video”][/wpspoiler]

Great Basin tribes, such as the Ute, Shoshoni and Painte, live/lived mainly in the U.S. Southwestern deserts of Utah and Nevada. Their music is relatively simple, with short and straightforward melodies placed within a small vocal range that are often repeated in pairs.
