native american outreach

  Christopher Bidtah and Delbert Anderson lived in the Navajo Reservation. Both artists carried their cultural aspects along with their musical experiences and created fusion music. Their cultural influences took an important role in their success. 

  Def-i and Anderson created motivational programs geared to the Native American youth. With the many hardships and struggles the Native American people go through, DDAT decided to partake in many Native American benefits and developed a special outreach program for the youth. 

  DDAT's program is self driven and self funded - this allows DDAT to fully control the content and quality of the presentations and workshops as well as giving DDAT 100% control of where raised funds go to ensure that donations go where they are needed.
The ultimate goal is to plant musical seeds in our youth's heart. It is the greatest feeling in the world when children are inspired by music and when they continue to be successful. Music saves us all!”
