SANTA FE, N.M. - May 21, 2018.   The Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) is sponsoring a very special night of free music at the Santa Fe Bandstand on Tuesday, August 9th at 6:00 pm, featuring popular Taos Pueblo musician Robert Mirabal.  Opening the show will be a Native American Drum Circle.

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.
