To honor and celebrate the work of Cherokee musicians, American Song Archives, Horton Records and American Folklore Society are thrilled to host a free concert on Saturday, October 15, 2022 from 5:30-7:30pm at Cain’s Ballroom featuring many of the artists featured on the album.

Anvdvnelisgi ᎠᏅᏛᏁᎵᏍᎩ is a groundbreaking album of original contemporary music from Cherokee musicians sung in the Cherokee language.
