Lenapehoking: Music by Brent Michael Davids

Brooklyn Public Library

The Dream Unfinished orchestra presents a portrait concert of works by contemporary composer Brent Michael Davids. Davids is a highly acclaimed concert and film composer, co-director of the Lenape Center in New York City, and an American Indian citizen of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of the Mohican Nation. As an American Indian music specialist, Davids is in demand as educator and consultant for films, television, schools, festivals, seminars and workshops. He is a master performer of American Indian instruments and styles, and a designer of original musical instruments, including traditional Native American instruments that he reconceives and reinvents, including a soprano quartz flute (1989), bass quartz flute (1991), and a dozen other percussion devices that chirp or whistle.

Presented in conjunction with the Lenapehoking exhibition at Greenpoint Library. It is the first Lenape-curated exhibition of Lenape cultural arts, both historic and contemporary, in the City of New York.

“Lenapehoking" is the Lenape name for the Lenape homeland, which spans from Western Connecticut to Eastern Pennsylvania, and the Hudson Valley to Delaware, with New York City at its center.
