In this interview we welcome local classical musician Gabriel Ayala of the Yoeme/Pascua Yaqui Tribe to the studio. I also introduce another special guest Carmen, who is the new intern for Cultivating Indigenous Voices. Here all three of us engage in great conversation getting to know Gabriel a little better, while sharing a few laughs. Hear the interesting story about where and how I met Gabriel and what he’s working on today. He is immersed in more than his music career, Gabriel talks about his passions and interests as a motivational speaker to youth throughout the states on into Canada. His latest art project has quickly gained attention from many people as it represents ledger art. This type of art is most recognized with the Plains Native Americans that dates back to the 19th century. Gabriel adds his own flare to ledger art by drawing and painting on classical sheet music in which this first series he has chosen to do on all Bach music. This interesting and entertaining interview shares the intriguing background of Mr. Ayala’s journey through life and how he chooses to express it. Enjoy!
