John Trudell: Bone Days

John Trudell’s poetry and music reflect an extraordinary life. He grew up on a Sioux reservation, served in Vietnam and helped lead the 1970’s American Indian Movement. In the 80s he began recording a fusion of poetry and Native music. Over the years, Trudell added electric blues to the mix. Bone Days continues this legacy; prompting listeners to look inward and out, be real, and proceed with wisdom and grace.
