Red Paint Powwow Revisited: Tygel Pinto

At the January 2013 Red Paint Powwow in Silver City, a young Navajo flutist, Tygel Pinto, got my attention.

When I thanked him for the pleasure his music gave me, he gave me his card and I looked online for examples of his music, but found none.

But now I have, and I'm happy to be able to share his work with you.

First, here's his story, which he told on a web-radio show a few months ago.

I like his blend of the traditional and contemporary.

Tygel comes across as a person with a warm personality, very engaging, so it's no surprise for me to read this

Good luck to Tygel.
