THE MUSIC OF BRULE & NICOLE


image


Native American musical traditions are fused with contemporary rock influences by pianist/keyboardist Brule (born: Paul La Roche). A member of the lower Brule Lakota nation, who was adopted as an infant and raised in a non-Native family, Brule uses music as a way to bring together the two cultures of his past. During a telephone interview, Brule explained that his 1997 debut album, "We The People" was "a means to bridge the gap between small town Americana and the Native American experience". His second album, "Lakota Piano", released in 1998, featured piano interpretations of songs by 1970s Native American rock band, XIT. Brule's third album, "One Holy Night", released the same year, was recorded with Robby Bee, the son of former XIT member and owner of the Native American-oriented SOAR label and its Natural Visions subsidiary, Tom Bee. With his fourth album, "One Nation", released in September 1999, Brule took a more global approach. "It's a further step in the evolving story of my life, " he explain d, "a way to bring all the people of the world together". Brule didn't discover his Native American heritage until he was in his thirties. Although born on the Lower Brule Sioux reservation in South Dakota, his adoptive parents, who raised him in the small farming town of Worthington, Minnesota, did not tell him of his heritage. It wasn't until the death of both of his adoptive parents in 1987 that he became aware of his ancestry. He was reunited with his Lakota parents in 1996.

BRULE THE COLLECTION BY BRULE

BRULE THE COLLECTION BY BRULE graphic Paul LaRoche, the central figure behind the contemporary Native American project Brule, got a little shock in the early 90's when he not only learned that he was adopted, but that he was of Lakota descent. Not long after that Brule was born, both as an outlet for LaRoche's creative expression and as a means of showing his pride in his heritage. This greatest hits package compiles some of his better known hits from his four releases on SOAR Records. Fans of Brule's signature sound, which blends traditional Native American instrumentation and chant samples with varied tempo electronic backdrops, will be right at home here with songs like "Buffalo Moon," "Star People" and "All My Relations."

DEEP DREAMS BY NICOLE

DEEP DREAMS BY NICOLE With her third solo album for SOAR Records, Nicole (of Brule) once again offers a melodic display of her flute prowess, set against a backdrop of beats and guitar. The music has more edge than her previous couple of albums, partially due to Shane LaRoche's electric guitar, which imparts a rock flavor to several songs. Techno and ambient effects have grown considerably smoother and sleeker with this release, with the pulsating trance tune "Orange Fire Rising" and the bittersweet, moody "The Journey" standing out as highlights. On the other side of the coin, slower songs like "One Heart" show a great deal of soul and expression. Brule bandmates Paul, Shane and Moses all lend a hand in the album's instrumentation, though this is Nicole's album through and through - her sublime and sensual flute playing is front and center on each of the album's tracks.

KINSHIP BY BRULE

KINSHIP BY BRULE graphic Paul LaRoche's family band Brule continues to be one most exciting in Native American music today, creating music that warms the soul one minute and has you dancing the next. KINSHIP contains all of the elements you expect from a Brule album - propulsive rhythms, positive energy and plenty of Native American flavor, with arrangements that seem fuller and smoother than any of their album's to date. The great thing about this band is how their music really celebrates their Lower Brule Sioux culture; there's a sense of pride that literally leaps out of the songs. The album begins on a powerful note with two synth-driven dance tunes: "Spirit of the Plains" and "Within the Red Circle," both of which will have you itching to move. "Family Alter," another highlight, is a touching ballad with a sense of melancholy and "Kinship Cycle (Mitakuye Oyasin)" shows that they are equally at home with a more rock-oriented song. If you liked Brule's past work, this album continues along the same path.

LAKOTA PIANO BY BRULE


lakota piano BY BRULE graphic Brule, a.k.a. Paul La Roche, plays piano, an instrument that does not fit with the stereotypical image of a Native musician, but then again nothing about La Roche is typical. Moving back to the reservation, he had a spiritual awakening that deeply affected his life and his music. Immersing himself in Lakota music, it gave him back a spiritual dimension that he'd lost sight of living in the city. On this new album, La Roche went through the songbook of XIT, the legendary Native American group of the '70s, and chose melodies that spoke to his heart. LAKOTA PIANO has the wide open sound of the central plains with a unique Lakota keyboard style that takes your breath away.

NIGHT TREE BY NICOLE

NIGHT TREE BY NICOLE graphic With her second solo album, classical flutist Nicole continues to prove that a flute need not be made of wood to capture the spirit of the Native American people. This exciting foray into Native American music's contemporary side features upbeat, pop arrangements (guitars, percussion, synthesizers) that are centered around big, anthem-like melodies. This is a true feel good album - there's lots of positive energy, catchy hooks and the urge to dance, or at least tap your feet, is quite powerful. Brule's Paul LaRoche (her father) produced the album, so fans of that group will want to take note.
