Tsago degi nayala
The Music of the North American Indians / J. Reuben Silverbird and The Vienna Boys’ Choir

* abgespielt

Tsago degi nayala (finding the holy place) The Vienna Boys’ Choir made their first visit to the United States of America in 1932, and Canada has regularly featured in the concert schedule since 1936. The Choir has travelled extensively in both countries, performing just under a hundred concerts there in total. Their first recording of the Native American Indian song “Ayapo” was made in 1933. Since then, songs have found their way into the archives of the Vienna Boys’ Choir from a number of tribes: Huron, Cherokee, Sioux, Arapaho, Chiricahua Apache, and the Pueblo peoples.

In 2011 the Choir received a visit from Joel Jojola, a medicine man and singer. In Curt Faudon’s latest film, “Bridging the Gap”, the choristers sing with the most senior Medicine Man of the Apache people, A. Paul Ortega. This impressive song of spiritual healing goes back to Goyaale, alias Geronimo, who once brought fear to the people of America. Gerald Wirth has taken this man as his starting point for a new composition: it is a real blend of two cultures. In these performances the Vienna Boys’ Choir can be heard with American Indian instruments.
