    Meet the latest Native American Music Award (NAMA) winners, Dark Water Rising and The Ollivanders, in an evening of outstanding music that highlights the next generation of musicians in Indian Country. Dark Water Rising brings a unique sound from North Carolina that is full of soul, blues and tradition. Members of the Lumbee and Tuscarora Nations, they are the winners of three NAMA awards with their most recent honor being “Best Gospel/Inspirational Recording” for “Grace & Grit: Chapter 1” at the 15th awards presentation. They explores various themes of life — love, heartbreak, sacrifice, celebration, despair, pain — all while expressing and evoking sincere emotion on issues affecting contemporary Native American communities. Dark Water Rising includes artists Charly Lowry (vocals/rhythm guitar/percussion), Aaron Locklear (keys/guitar/drums), Corey Locklear (lead guitar), Tony Murnahan (bass) and Emily Musolino (vocals/lead guitar/bass). Opening the concert will be the Six Nations-based rock band The Ollivanders who won for “Best Rock Recording,” and features the talents of Martin Isaacs, Ryan Mickeloff and Ryan Johnson. The band members, close friends since their high school days in Caledonia, Ontario, picked up the award for their 13-song album, “Two Suns.”
