The Austin Powwow

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.

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.

Listen as the Austin Music Map takes you behind the scenes at the community that pulls the powwow together.
