Reissue label Light In The Attic (the label that brought you the return of Sixto Rodriguez of Searching For Sugarman) has compiled a 3 LP set entitled Native North America, Vol. 1, filled with unknown and obscure American Aboriginal music.
The 34 song set features songs and recordings by indigenous peoples from Canada and the northern United States. These largely unheard and undiscovered songs represent not only a diverse group of artists from a sadly ignored culture, but also are a reflection of a 12 year odyssey by the folks at Light In The Attic to help this work see the light of day.
The three LP set includes a 60 page booklet with photos and stories of all the artists featured. A beautiful trailer is now available below. Be sure to check it out to hear some of the songs featured on the set and to meet some of the people whose voice is finally being heard.
Native North America, Vol. 1 will be out on November 25 via Light In The Attic. You can pre-order here.
