86th Annual Hopi Festival of Arts & Culture

The ONGTUPQA team is honored to have received an invitation to perform at the 87th annual Hopi Festival at the Museum of Northern Arizona on Sunday, July 7th. ONGTUPQA is a Hopi cultural music and video project celebrating the most ancient sounds to emerge from Ongtupqa (the Hopi name for Grand Canyon which translates to "Salt Canyon"), recorded inside its most significant structure, the Desert View Watchtower. Clark Tenakhongva, Gary Stroutsos and Matthew Nelson use their mastery of voice, flute and percussion to bring the acoustics within the building to life and use the Watchtower itself as an acoustic vessel.
