Programme Note
John Luther Adams Giving Birth to Thunder, Sleeping With His Daughter, Coyote Builds North America (1990)
Prankster, warrior, seducer, fool: Old Man Coyote is the most enduring legend in Native American culture. Crafty and cagey—and often the victim of his own magical intrigues and lusty appetites—he created the earth and man. Based on tales collected by Barry Lopez from forty-two tribes, the stories bring to life a timeless myth that abounds with sly wit, erotic adventure, and rueful wisdom.
