Buffy Sainte-Marie : New Album : Interview

516bK1aDv+L._SS280Legendary singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie made an appearance on Democracy Now to announce her new album, Power in the Blood.

With Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez, Buffy talks about making the album and the social issues discussed throughout the album such as Positive Mutation. She stresses a concept called Alternative Conflict Resolution.

Two of her older songs have been updated and re-recorded. She sings in a song Lyric.

“Mother Nature She’s the Daughter of God”

Juan Gonzalez asked her about the state of the music industry. You need to hear Buffy’s responses. Amy asked about her experience being black-listed from performance venues in the 70s and 80s. The presidential administrations of those decades apparently were attempting to squash the careers of outspoken musicians.

No Thanks. No Giving.

Annette Joy returns with this mind expanding edition of The Smoke Signal, Native Voices on Air.  This episode concerns the false holiday that is known as Thanksgiving. But we don’t stop there.

We share lots of great spoken word and music from a Native perspective.

We’ll hear spoken word from John Truedell, a commentary from Mumia Abu Jamal and music from artists Thunder Hill, Blackfire, Quese IMC and more. So while everyone seems to be taken in by the hyper consumerism of the “holiday season”, join us for 34 minutes of Clarity.
