Taos Pueblo / US
Grammy Award-winning musician Robert Mirabal performs worldwide, sharing flute songs, tribal rock, dance, and storytelling that reflect his life in Taos Pueblo in New Mexico, where he grew up. He speaks the Tiwa language and still participates in the traditional ways and rituals of his people. Robert is also a master of flute making:
his instruments have been displayed at the Smithsonian Institute’s Museum of the American Indian. During the pandemic, he cultivated land on his beloved Taos Pueb- lo, while working on new music that weaves a timely message of agriculture, our relationship to the earth, food justice, and the pueblo way. (Some Lotus way-back trivia: Robert first performed on a Lotus stage for a concert in 1995).
