Sonic Collective Native State of Mind WAV
Tippie & PJ Vegas present – Native State of Mind
The Native State of Mind sample pack is very much a “collaboration with our Native peoples and ancestors.” The pack includes traditional Native American instruments and chants from all four corners of turtle island, made available to the rest of the world for the first time ever.
This project was curated by PJ Vegas and Tippie, who represent the Yoeme and Comanche Nations. The pack includes vocals from Nelson Baker (Poundmaker Cree, Mandan, Hidatsa), Lisa Muswagon (Nakoda Cree), Spur Pourier (Oglala Lakota), and Miracle Spotted Bear (Oglala Lakota). Instruments include flutes and hand drums by Artson (Tarahumara, Raramuri). Ayoytes shaker shells by PJ Vegas (Yoeme) and song-starters from Tippie (Comanche).
For this pack, Splice will be donating its share of the royalties from the first year to IllumiNative (https://illuminatives.org/), a new nonprofit initiative designed to increase the visibility of – and challenge the negative narrative about – Native Nations and peoples in American society.
