SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- On Nov. 11, 2015, the Museum of Musical Instruments in Scottsdale is hosting a unique group of diverse contemporary and traditional music, featuring the R.Carlos Nakai Quartet and rock duo Sihasin, in concert. This special event honors Native American Heritage Month at the museum.

The R. Carlos Nakai Quartet features 10 times Grammy nominated Navajo Ute flutist R.Carlos Nakai. Mixing original compositions with inspired improvisations, RCNQ features R. Carlos Nakai on Native American flutes, concert flute, trumpet and voice; Will Clipman on drums, pan-global percussion and voice; AmoChip Dabney on saxophones, keyboards and voice; and Johnny Walker on bass and voice.
