Restoring the Voice of the Abenaki

The Abenaki women’s choir Voices of the Koas have been recognized in-depth by the Manchester (NH) Union Leader for their commitment to revitalizing the lyrical heritage of the Alnobak. They are based in the Upper (Connecticut River) Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire and are active in sharing their gift of song in the schools and communities of northern New England. They have just released a new CD, Lal8maw8gan, with 9 tracks sung by the group joined by a few of their students, a new generation carrying the culture forward. You may purchase a copy on their website!
