OUR GUEST: Recording Artist Jan Michael Lookingwolf

Bio:

"A modern master of the Native American Flute, a premier performer of the instrument of our time..."- - - Billboard Journal
He is an enrolled Kalapuya member of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, who resides within his indigenous homelands in Oregon, Jan Michael Looking Wolf is a world-renowned Native American flute player. Traveling a broad range of musical styles, his recordings have garnered over 52 awards and a top ten ranking in the new age charts. He is the winner of several Native American Music Awards including Artist of the Year, Flutist of the Year, Best Record and Best Music Video.

Jan Michael's lifeway and musical expressions are based on the tradition of 'One Heart'. In short, it is a universal truth that everyone is equal regardless of the color of our skin, tribal affiliation, language we speak, income, gender, faith, nationality or personal beliefs. 'One Heart' is the recognition of Unity through Diversity.
Jan Michael regularly performs songs from his recordings.  He has toured across the country and performed overseas at both large and smaller venues.  His music shares hope, love, compassion, and connection.  Also, active in philanthropy, his music has been used to help several non-profit projects including children with cancer, homeless shelters, earthquake survivors, and youth drug and alcohol prevention.

After nearly two decades of research of the Native American Flute, Jan Michael co-created a curriculum for an accredited university course which he instructs regularly. He has authored two books that are published.  "One Heart and the Native American Flute" which focuses on the flute's history and technique, and "The First Flute", published by Red Deer Press.
