MAY 25, 2012 - For the past few weeks, ABORIGINAL SOUNDS was out of commissionbut we are working hard at bringing it back with some fantastic new music from some amazing indigenous recording artists. This edition features brand new music and exclusive interviews with such American Indian recording artists and entrepreneurs as JANA MASHONEE (Lumbee), FRANK WALN (Rosebud Sioux) of the hip hop band NAKE NULA WAUN and NAMMY -winning flute player CODY BLACKBIRD (Eastern Band Cherokee/Dakota).
Kicking off this new show is the soulful sound of JANA MASHONEE who was recently awarded the 2012 ROCKWIRED RADIO MUSIC AWARD for BEST FEMALE ARTIST. The interview for this show was conducted a whole week before the announcement and presentation of the award so we were interviewing her while trying not to giggle. In the interview MASHONEE discusses the inspiration behind her latest single STAY WITH ME BABY. Given MASHONEE's industrious spirit and amazing presence, it is little wonder that she has set her sights on acting. She is set to star in the film RAPTOR RANCH. In the spring of 2011, JANA kicked off the premiere edition of ABORIGINAL SOUNDS and this year she is doing so again with the shows relaunch. How is that for things coming full circle.

In 2011they scored the prestigious NAMMY Award for FRANK's work behind the mixing board and became ROCKWIRED.COM's ARTiST OF THE MONTH FOR TWO MONTH – a feat never before accomplished in the history of the ARTIST OF THE MONTH CAMPAIGN and kicked of the year by winning the 2012 ROCKWIRED RADIO MUSIC AWARD for BEST BAND. In the interview WALN discusses a new documentary being made about his life and work and his latest single HEAR MY CRY featuring CODY BLACKBIRD. Download NAKE NULA WAUN's interview here.
