Austin Music Map: The Austin Powwow
KUT’s Texas Music Matters is partnering with the national Localore initiative and Zeega to create the Austin Music Map: a yearlong effort to go beyond the well-traveled streets of the Austin music scene in search of the hidden places where music is being made. We want your help discovering and documenting these places. To find out how to get involved, visit the Austin Music Map website or call our hotline with stories and tips: (512) 861-8266.
Last weekend marked the 21st Annual Austin Powwow, which saw some of its biggest crowds ever. The event drew over 50,000 people from central Texas and beyond, including singers, dancers, observers, vendors, and some hoping to rediscover lost traditions.
The Austin Music Map looks behind the scenes at the community that pulls the powwow together.
