About the Perfomers

For indigenous collective Earth Surface People, creation, language and storytelling are vehicles for reclamation of culture as well as creative expression and collaboration.

Founded by Diné songwriter and producer Yellowhorse and named for Dinétah’s first people, the sonic landscapes created by Earth Surface People fuse lo-fi balladry, contemporary R&B, art rock, slow jams, synth-pop, jazz fusion and field recordings.

The band’s lush, soulful and unabashed full-length debut—nihookááʼ diyin dineʼé—emerged from a two-year collaboration between the collective and Menominee linguist Naneque Latender, peyote musicians Cody and Larry Yazzie and ascendant Diné vocalist Nanibaah Talley.

Written and recorded on Apache, Diné, Menominee and Pueblo territories and released via Underwater Panther Coalition, the self-titled album celebrates indigenous languages, cultures and storytelling, melding influences from across the width and breadth of Turtle Island.

Kuwani is a queer, indigenous DJ and Drag artist currently residing in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Specializing in house, techno, and bass music, Kuwani always bringing a good beat and keeps you dancing.
