Vision of the Drum
Twelve Oregon-based American Indian/Alaska Native high school youth recently embarked on a 16-month music industry leadership program called “Setting the Stage," where they are writing, recording and marketing an original album of contemporary-meets-traditional music in collaboration with multi-genre celebrity musicians. The
program is designed by Portland-based Beats Lyrics Leaders (BLL), and brings together support
from the NW Portland Area Indian Health Board, the Cow Creek Band of the Umpqua Tribe of
Indians, the Native American Rehabilitation Association, PDX Pop Now!, the Oregon Arts
Commission, the Oregon Cultural Trust, and Universal Records.
