The Boyz, a championship Northern-style drum group from St. Paul, Minnesota, have established themselves as one of pow-wow’s hottest groups through their powerful singing and distinctive songmaking skills. Hailing from Pawnee, Oklahoma, Young Bird has blazed their way along the pow-wow trail, thrilling dancers and audiences with their world-class Southern-style singing. Both groups are in top demand on the modern pow-wow circuit and travel extensively throughout North America. Recorded live at the annual Shakopee Mdewankanton Sioux Community Pow-Wow, The Boyz and Young Bird present their newest songs in this live recording that reveals all the dynamic beauty and energy of today’s pow-wow.
