8. Heart To Survive (7:15)

Powwow Drum Played By Roman Orona

This song was inspired by the beating of the heart. This song is played on the big powwow drum and in my culture the drum is the heartbeat of all things. All types of drumming is similar to the various beats of the heart (resting, slow, medium, fast, etc.). In order for all of us to survive, we need the heart. In order for my culture to survive, we need the drum. Sending love from my heart to yours!
