  Native American music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The music of the Pima and Papago is intermediary between the Plains-Pueblo and the California-Yuman music areas, with melodic movement of the Yuman, though including the rise, and the form and rhythm of the Pueblo.
This area's music is characterized by extreme vocal tension, pulsation, melodic preference for perfect fourths and a range averring a tenth, rhythmic complexity, and increased frequence of tetratonic scales.
Music of the Great Basin is simple, discrete and ornate, characterized by short melodies with a range smaller than an octave, moderately-blended monophony, relaxed and open vocals and, most uniquely, paired-phrase structure, in which a melodic phrases, repeated twice, is alternated with one to two additional phrases.

 Peyote song - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Peyote songs are a form of Native American music, now most often performed as part of the Native American Church.
They are typically accompanied by a rattle and water drum, and are used in a ceremonial aspect during the sacramental taking of peyote.
Vocal style, melodic contour, and rhythm in Peyote songs is closer to Apache than Plains, featuring only two durational values, predominating thirds and fifths of Apache music with the tile-type melodic contour, incomplete repetitions, and isorhythmic tendencies of Plains-Pueblo music.

Music is rarely performed for its own sake, but is usually associated with a specific activity or rite such as ceremonies for treating the sick, bringing success in battle, at the time of death, passage to the next age group, games, gambling, dancing, courtship, children's songs, dreams, and visions.
The new music that is part of this movement is a more complex version of the Plains form, together with the Athabascan rhythm with a rapid accompaniment of drum and rattle and a high, whining style.
Since music in traditional styles and languages can contribute to the goal to preserve language and culture, and promotes language development and school success, it is a worthy goal to teach more teachers the songs and dances.

 Tucson Weekly : Music : Keeping Múm
In addition, every so-called music critic with a word processor is intent on coining a "clever" new phrase to avoid otherwise describing or thinking intellectually about said musical category.
It's a combination of electronica, pop, hip-hop, jazz, classical chamber music, minimalist composition, dance music and meditative musical mantras--music for the mind, the soul and, sometimes, the feet.
Múm's music can be seen in many ways as an abstract painting--it is open to the interpretations of the listener.

Traditionally, in Plains music, the drum beat is slightly ahead of the vocal beat in a complex pattern.
The familiar "hai-yas" and "yo-is" and such that often led non-Indians to declare that all Indian music sounds alike are in actuality what Isaacs calls prescribed vocables—not improvised, but composed in the song.
"Pueblo music reflects a long and settled community-minded tradition, so their musical pieces tend to be long and language-based, with vocables interspersed.

 Tucson Weekly : Music : Mariachi Conquista
As for when mariachi music first came to Tucson, "it is true that mariachi music came to Tucson probably after the second World War," says Jim Griffith, former Southwest Folklore Center director, former professor of folklore for the University of Arizona and a board member for Los Changuitos Feos de Tucson in the 1980s.
Mariachi music is older as an art form than previously thought, having been documented as a musical form before the arrival of the French in Mexico in the middle of the 19th century.
As for the popularity of mariachi music, Fernández suggests that Latinos hearing the music in their home while growing up keep spreading it.

They have instead created a music for their people, who live in multiple worlds simultaneously, a world that requires constant reinvention and integration of the old with the new.
