About this video

In this concert, Douglas Spotted Eagle shares with the audience his experiences throughout his musical career. He talks about his way of playing, his beginnings, the instruments he has performed and how they were made. Specifically, he speaks about his flute, which he considers is magic and powerful, and he also relates how flutes were measured and made in the old days. Besides, he comments on how Hollywood presents a savage image of Native Americans when the truth is that they were really intelligent. He argues that they invented the flute, the music, and the number 0, among other discoveries. Spotted Eagle plays some modern style Native American pieces of his own as well as a song recorded in 1892 by Thomas Alva Edison, which is an older flute style. He explains how the history of this instrument is full of love, feelings, and elements of nature; how men became friend of it and how they learned to perform it. Finally, he plays with local musicians a little of marimba.
