Silvercloud Singers ㅤ
Known for powerful vocals, the Silvercloud Singers have been weaving traditional and contemporary Native song and dance since 1991. The Silvercloud singers come from tribal nations throughout the United States and Canada. They have recorded numerous albums of original songs, the most recent of which is 25 to Life, released in 2017. Founding member Kevin Tarrant was Bear Clan of the HoChunk Nation of Wisconsin and Sky Clan of the Hopi Tribe of Arizona. He named the intertribal drum group in honor of his mother, Josephine Mofsie Tarrant. Kevin Tarrant died in 2020, due to complications from COVID-19. Since the waning of the pandemic, the Silvercloud Singers have regrouped to perform at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and We Are the Seeds Philly 2022, with current lead singer Travis Richardson.
Past performances by the Silvercloud Singers include commemoration ceremonies for the Year of the Indigenous Peoples at the United Nations, the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian, The Public Theater, The Apollo, Roseland, the Theater at Madison Square Garden, Trinity Church, The American Museum of Natural History, The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, and the American Indian College Fund Flame of Hope Gala. The group worked with Ulali and Robbie Robertson on the soundtrack for the 1994 TNT network series, Native Americans.
