This event is co-sponsored by the Native American Institute.
Injunuity is a Native American flute-centric roots group forged in 2007 by award winning composers Brad Clonch (Mississippi Choctaw) and Jeff Carpenter (Chickasaw). Since their inception Injunuity has released four full length albums; snatched up multiple national music awards; performed across the US and Europe; and has been featured in radio, tv, documentaries, and feature length films.
Immediately this cultural sound and blend of genres drew attention, leading to the addition of two members; Philip Sullivan and Brian Harrison.
The inspiration drawn for all original tracks and compositions are based off the ability to experience tribal culture and life daily in Oklahoma, as well as interaction among other tribes, historians, storytellers, and even trips to the original homelands of the Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Cherokee people. Native Americans have profoundly helped shape the United States. The music of Injunuity helps revisit these times and keep them alive through song.
Injunuity’s music promotes the introduction of Native American music and history into popular culture, helping break stereotypes about Native Americans and the music within the Indian Culture. Simply put, “we’re not your grandfather’s flute music!”
