About The Indigenous in Music Radio Show

Indigenous in Music a not-for-profit section 501c(3) in the state of Florida. Join Larry every week as he brings you live interviews and a mix of new music from our Indigenous musicians from around the Western Hemisphere, a variety of rock, pop, country, flute, salsa, classical, house and electronica. Indigenous in Music is distributed on Native Voice One, the Native America Indian Radio Network, PRX the Public Radio Exchange and Pacifica Audio Port. A big Pini-Gigi (Thank you) to “SAY Magazine” a international Indigenous magazine for giving Indigenous in Music a mention and for featuring all of our musical guest’s.

The Indigenous in Music Radio Show was developed to support indigenous musicians. After we did our research, we discovered that our indigenous musicians were not getting the exposure needed to get into the mainstream music scene. Host Larry Knudsen, from the Ho–Chunk Nation started the Indigenous in Music Radio Show.
