Charly Lowry performs “Brown Skin” at Music at the Mansion

November 30, 2019

Towards the beginning of Charly Lowry’s Music at the Mansion performance, her band stepped back and Charly took center stage, holding only a hand drum. She took the opportunity to speak about how her identity as a woman intersects with her work as a Native American musician. She spoke about her relationship with fellow Native American singer-songwriter Pura Fé, the significance of the hand drum to her culture, and the UNC-Chapel Hill origins of her anthem for women, “Brown Skin."
