Robby Romero

Feature

Saturday, September 18, 2004

Romero is an Apache who spent a lot of his childhood in Hollywood. His parents were in the film industry — his mom once danced in an Elvis movie. But as he got older and started playing music professionally, he found his calling in Native Rock, mixing contemporary folk-rock with traditional native instruments like flutes and hand drums. Yet Romero chafes when his work is categorized as "Native American” music. Minnesota Public Radio’s Annie Baxter caught up with Romero at the Mille Lacs Reservation in Minnesota.
