Musician to sow cultural seeds
■y Jill Olrtu
Staff Reporter
Robert Mirabal has been planting
cultural seeds of understanding dur
ing his residency at the University of
And the Taos Pueblo composer
and flutist will begin harvesting those
seeds with his performance tonight at
Kimball Hall. His cousin, drummer
Reynaldo Lujan, will accompany him.
“I’ve been talking for three weeks
straight,” Mirabal said. “I don’t want
to talk anymore. I just want to play.”
Mirabal, who has taught four and
sometimes five classes daily, said he
even taught the teachers of Lincoln
Public Schools.
“I haven’t taught this extensively
anywhere,” he said, sitting at the
piano in the Steinhart Room of the
Lied Center for Performing Arts be
fore his stage movement class.
The multitalented musician from
New Mexico speaks to students on a
level to which they can relate — his
humor is as universal as his music.
Smiles broadened as theater stu
dents filed into the room and wit
nessed Mirabal and Lujan jamming
on five traditional American Indian
Drumsticks bounced rhythms off
taut rawhide stretched across cotton
wood rims. On oneof the larger drums,
there is an unfinished ink drawing of
an eagle that Lujan sketched.
Surprisingly, Lujan said drum
ming was not his profession.
“I was a dancer before I was a
drummer. I started dancing when I
was 4 years old," he said.
He and Mirabal worked on a dude
ranch for several years, sharing their
traditions in what Lujan called “Na
tive Americanizing.”
During that time, Lujan got into
powwow drumming, which led him
to become a member of the White
Eagle Singers in 1975, he said.
“I’ve always been into music; that’s
the fun side,” Lujan said. “I grow
com, like my grandfather. That’s my
serious side.”
Concert: Robert Mirabal and
Reynaldo Lujan
At: Kimball Recital Hall
Time: 8:00 tonight
Tickets: $3, available at the
Lied Center
Farming is important to the cul
ture of the Taos Pueblo Indians,
Mirabal said.
While Lujan stays closer to home,
hunting and planting. Mirabal’s live
lihood takes him across the world,
performing and teaching.
In light of his teaching at UNL, he
said the concert would be on a more
traditional level.
“m talk about the flute and incor
porate different rhythms and vocal
techniques. People should listen to
the vocals, the rattles... the drum. It
will be a journey from ancient, an
cient times to the present day.”

in the design with a chisel and she
cuts it out with the chain saw. She
makes the final touch-ups with chisel
scratches. As it melts, the sculpture
smooths itself out. The process takes
about two hours.
She said the challenge was not to
break or crack the sculpture. Melting
isn’t a main concern, she said, as long
as the sculpture stays out of direct

Mayfield said she enjoyed looking
at the completed sculptures, but that
enjoyment was short-lived.
“It’s not like a wood sculpture. My
sculptures are puddles in a few hours.”
she said. “I don’t get to keep them.”
As Mayfield saws into the ice. a
light snow covers her feet, but she
said she didn’t mind. In the winter,
she dresses warmly and even wears
electric socks.
“I like being cold,” she said. “It
drives my husband nuts when I have
the thermostat set at 35 degrees at
night, and I’m under just a sheet, and
he s got three comforters and ear
But. she said. ”... I don't think
he’d ever be mean to me when I’m
holding my chain saw.”
Mayfield’s husband also is an art
ist. but he is more of the traditional
acrylic painting kind. Mayfield's
mother-in-law and fathcr-in-law also
get a taste of her art.
“They usually get a sculpture in
their front yard during Thanksgiving
or Christmas.”
