True Track 5: Native American music(Shoshone tribe)

Native Americans are a very diverse group of people. Most of the Native American music that I have listened to in the past involved big drums, and chants. I have had the fortune of participating in a traditional Round Dance, and the rhythm of the drum along with the chants and repetitions from the singers made up the music for this dance.
So I was pleasantly surprised when I came across a track from the Shoshone tribe, which had neither drums or chanting! There is definitely more to Native American music than meets the ear. This track predominantly uses flutes, and ensemble of flutes playing harmoniously along with some complex rhythms makes this worth a listen. It will make you smile.
