Native America Calling: Music Maker
Wednesday, April 14, 2021

With a mix of spoken word and jazzy soul sounds, Muscogee Creek Nation musician Joy Harjo might make listeners want to dance to her new album I Pray for My Enemies.

But her creations are also meant to make people think and feel. Harjo, the nation’s first Native American Poet Laureate, features words in her Muscogee language layered with graceful jazz. And listeners are treated to her inviting saxophone sounds.

Native America Calling’s April Music Maker is a celebration of the music and poetry of Joy Harjo.
