An Interview with Will Clipman at the Heart Dance Records Summit

We’re honored to present a special interview with world percussionist Will Clipman to beautifully wrap-up the series of interviews we conducted at the Heart Dance Records summit in Phoenix, Arizona earlier this year. A seven-time Grammy Award nominee and three-time Native American Music Award winner, Clipman’s numerous recordings have included collaborations with fellow musical legends R. Carlos Nakai, Gary Stroutsos, William Eaton and Robert Tree Cody. Renowned for his distinctive polyrhythms that draw from a pan-global percussive palette, Clipman’s signature sound often traverses the musical boundaries of ethnic fusion, tribal-ambient and even Acoustic Americana, such as on the recent Trialogue album, which he recorded with flutist Sherry Finzer and guitarist Darin Mahoney.

Music from the albums Pathfinder, Sacred Clay, Awakening the Fire, Heart of the Wind, Trialogue, Dancing into Silence, People of Peace, and Feather, Stone and Light can be heard throughout this interview.
