First Tuesday Music: Peter Ali
Peter Ali comes from a unique blending of cultures. His father, from Morocco, is Berber, and his mother is of Yaqui Indian heritage, as well as Italian and Spanish, from Sonora Mexico. Ali plays a variety of Native American flutes, a Mayan style flute, a Toltec style drone, as well as Norwegian and Middle Eastern flutes. He performs and teaches flute playing and flute making through various Native American tribal programs, and was a featured performer for the Dalai Lama during the Seeds of Compassion Seattle event.
Ali will talk about his unique flute collection and will perform both contemporary and traditional songs. After his performance, he will give the audience a brief lesson in flute playing and will make some cedar flutes available for audience use.
