Washington State History Museum

This is a non Confluence event.

Join the renowned band Khu.éex’ for a live streamed performance directly from the Museum of Glass. Tlingit tribal member Preston Singletary, an internationally recognized glass artist, founded this one-of-a-kind collaboration with major musicians including the legendary late Rock and Roll Hall of Fame composer and performer Bernie Worrell of Parliament/Funkadelic and Talking Heads: Skerik, collaborator with Pearl Jam; Stanton Moore of Galactic; Captain Raab of Red Earth; and tribal members Clarissa Rizal, Gene Tagaban and Nahaan.

Khu.éex’ (pronounced koo-eex) translates to “Potlatch” in the Tlingit language. The Tlingit are a Native group from Southeast Alaska. Singletary thought of the name because of the notion of sharing culture, stories, and music. The intent of Khu.éex’ is to present contemporary interpretation of our culture to empower others.
