#iamHUMAN℠

 

This project was developed to promote the unity and equality of all humans.  This project will work with all humans no matter age, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, economic or social status, in fact the more diverse the better.  

 

The purpose of the #iamHUMAN℠ project is to take the audience through a brief but most memorable account of yourself as a unique and one of a kind individual, acknowledging our foundational interconnectedness that WE ARE ALL HUMAN!   

SEEKING:

I am looking for more individuals to be part of this project.  If you are interested in being part of the change and would like to let the world know your story or would like to contribute funds to #iamHUMAN, please contact me at rorona29@gmail.com and we can discuss this further.  Thank you!

PROPHECY

I am currently in discussion with a production company, to coheadline a tour of the Pacific Northwest in early 2017.  This tour is currently proposed to include Oregon, Washington and Idaho.  Numerous legalities need to be finalized, but if booked an audience will see many elements of my stage production PROPHECY.  

 

PROPHECY features various native dances, uplifting vocals, thunderous drumming, flutes music and original Native American stories.  This captivating program will have the audience soaring through the sight and sounds. The program will convey the very foundation of “balance in life” with messages of unity, peace and equality.  

PROPHECY is ready to be toured and is currently seeking additional venues.  To book PROPHECY or other performances visit my website at romanorona.com or email me at romanoronaentertainment@gmail.com

Circling Spirits 

This album presents a collection of Apache songs that express his people’s sacred values.  With drums, dancers’ bells, whistles and vocals sung from the heart, Roman’s music acknowledges the spirits of the ancestors who sacrificed their lives, families and lands, so that their tribal  communities could endure. Driven by a vision of respect for all humanity, these songs from the Apache tradition are meant to touch the human soul in all of us.

"Dancing Spirits" features a rare paring of Apache singing and the world-renowned flute artistry of R. Carlos Nakai.  Nakai's Native American flute melodies seamlessly weave through the pulsing beat of Apache drum and vocals by Roman.

The song "Sacred Cave Song" features Roman joining in singing this classic San Carlos Apache song with the late Phillip Cassadore through the medium of recording technology.

Hello everyone,

I hope that you are well and in great spirits. The 2016 year has kept me very busy working on a personal film project, working on remixing some songs off the my Circling Spirits cd and various performances.

My new film project which will be released via social media very shortly.

I participated in many performances since January 2016.  The highlights of my performances were the 58th Annual Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market (March 5 & 6, 2016) and the Verde Valley Archeology Fair and American Indian Fair and Art Show (March 19 & 20, 2016).  

My solo performance, Prophecy, is ready to be toured. This performance includes a foundation of traditional and contemporary Native American storytelling, song and dance. This foundation is intertwined with the prophecies of unity, equality and oneness of humanity. This performance is currently booking venues and can be tailored to fit the venue and time allotment.  Click below to see the trailer of Prophecy.

Catching Up

April 15, 2015

Hello,

 

I hope that you are well and in great spirits. The 2015 year has kept me very busy working on various projects that include a revamped website, film, music and performances.  

I am super excited to announce my recent signing to Canyon Records (Canyon Records founded in 1958 in Phoenix, Arizona, producer and distributor of Native American music, is one of the oldest independent record labels in the music industry as well as one of the oldest cultural institutions in the state of Arizona). I have been busy recording a great album titled, Circling Spirits, that will include contemporary and traditional style Apache music. The album will have special guests like R. Carlos Nakai and the late Phillip Cassadore. Special remixed versions specifically for download on iTunes will also be available. The album is estimated to be released in the summer of 2015.  

I have been busy filming a drama for television. This series will be broadcasted on cable and satellite in the Los Angeles area with about 4 million viewers and is titled Frontera Roja (Blood Border). It portrays the dark side and cruelty of humanity which include trafficking of human organs. I also booked a role in Centrifugal, a part of the Arizona 10 short films series. Arizona 10 short films is a collection of 10 short films that will take place and showing the various landscapes in Arizona. The filming for this series should begin in the summer of 2015. Finally I have been casted to another television series titled Big Sky. This series addresses the American frontier realities of slavery, bigotry, and greed, as well as the more desirable human qualities of forgiveness, hope, and the pursuit of dreams. With a classic, Bonanza-era feel, plentiful action, cliffhanger endings, and some comic relief, Big Sky’s varied cast of characters experience joy and heartache, life and death, failure and victory, all while exhibiting an indomitable will to persevere in the true pioneer spirit. 

 

My solo performance, Prophecy, is finalized and is ready to be toured. This performance includes a foundation of traditional and contemporary Native American storytelling, song and dance. This foundation is intertwined with the prophecies of unity, equality and oneness of humanity. This performance is currently booking venues and can be tailored to fit the venue and time allotment.

 

Please contact me for any bookings at rorona29@gmail.com and lets discuss how I can help you. I need your help by inviting your friends and family to visit my website romanorona.com, sign up for updates and follow me on social media.
