SANTA FE, N.M. - April 4, 2018.   The Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) is sponsoring a very special night of free music at the Santa Fe Bandstand on Friday, August 9, 2019 at 6:00 pm, featuring popular Taos Pueblo musician Robert Mirabal.  Opening the show will be drum circles presented by drum groups from local pueblos.

Two-time GRAMMY Award winner, Robert Mirabal, lives at the foot of the sacred Taos Mountain in northern New Mexico. Maintaining a traditional life, keeping the centuries-old customs of the Taos Pueblo people, Robert has been described as a Native American "Renaissance man" - musician, composer, painter, master craftsman, poet, actor, screenwriter, horseman, and farmer. He travels extensively playing his music all over the world.

His performance during IAIA Night at the 2018 Bandstand was a show not to be forgotten.
