A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson


A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson

YouTube is full of music that claims to be Native American from North America and usually it isn't. It may be quite beautiful music but it is not what it claims to be. And in my view it does not have the same power.  This is authentic, beautiful and powerful

Singer, song writer and guitarist Robbie Robertson was born Jaime Robert Klegerman in 1943, in Toronto, Ontario. He was born to a Jewish father and a Mohawk mother and took his stepfather's last name after his mother remarried. He had his earliest exposure to music at Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation, Ontario where he spent summers with his mother's family. He is best known for his membership in The Band.

  10. I knew Robby from the days The Band members were the house band at Lone Star Cafe down by Washington Square Park. The percussion guy actually had me come down one night when a very drunken Kinky Friedman and the Texas Jew boys were losing the show at Folk City to a very snooty audience. I was then known for my rockabilly and tried to liven up the place. No go!! I stayed and joined Kinky for a few beers. Ah, the good old days!! Good memories. I'm so glad like myself, Robbie came home to his true self and back on the good red road!
