A cappella trio performs American Indian music

Photo: Pura Fe, Soni, and JenniferAmerican Indian experiences are voiced in the music of Ulali, an a cappella trio that will bring its unique sound to California State University, Sacramento, Tuesday, March 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the University Union Ballroom.

Known for its unusual harmonies and extensive musical range, Ulali’s sound reflects the many styles and languages of their ancestors. Credited with creating a new genre of Native American music, Pura Fe, Soni and Jennifer perform an array of indigenous music including Southeast choral singing and pre-Columbian music. Known for their yearning and powerful voices, Ulali drums, rattles and stomps in their energetic performances.

“Over the past three years, Ulali has been the one group that our Native American students have consistently requested,” says Leonard Valdez, director of the CSUS Multi-Cultural Center. “Ulali’s voices harmonize wonderfully and they have a unique way of addressing song and the Native American experience.”

Tickets are $7 for CSUS students and $12 for general admission. They are available at the CSUS ticket office (916) 278-4323 or at For media assistance contact the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
