Native singer-songwriter Raye Zaragoza will bring her “Hold That Spirit Tour” to the University of Wyoming Thursday, Sept. 28.
Her free public performance is at 7:30 p.m. in the UW College of Education auditorium. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. UW’s Native American Education, Research and Cultural Center and the Multicultural Affairs Speaker Series sponsor the performance.
Zaragoza -- a Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter -- has always made political folk music that is informed by her identity as a woman of mixed Indigenous, Asian and Latina heritage. She gained recognition in 2016 with “In the River,” which was written to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.
When she performed a Tiny Desk Concert for National Public Radio, she spoke and sang about making live music more economically accessible. She currently writes the music for Netflix’s “Spirit Rangers,” a show featuring an all-Native American writers' room and cast.
