Paul LaRoche is the founder and producer of the award-winning Native American music group Brulé. The group is best known for thrilling audiences with a mergence of cultural rock and theatrical instrumentations. Now in their 26th season, their national performances carry the same contagious excitement as Trans Siberian Orchestra, Celtic Thunder, and Riverdance—but with the emotional impact of the American Indian culture. The group is one of the top-selling Native American adult/rock music groups and has chalked up impressive CD sales (over 1 million worldwide). Brulé has released 23 titles in as many years and has been named “Group of the Year” five times by the prestigious Native American Music Awards, earning seven NAMMYs since 2002. Their annual performance schedule takes them extensively throughout the U.S., touring the casino, performing arts theatre, arena, corporate and festival circuits. They were recently invited to tour Saudi Arabia where they were one of the first public musical performances in over 45 years.
Brulé has pushed the boundaries of contemporary Native American rhythms and classic rock in their genre-blending selections. Their electrifying show consists of a rock ensemble augmented with an array of traditional Native American instrumentation. Paired with the stunning choreography of one of the top Native American dance troupes, their authenticity brings a multi-dimensional art form to this cultural rock opera. The musical journey of Brulé’s founder, Paul LaRoche, adds an affecting story to audiences and has been well documented in the best-selling biography "Hidden Heritage". Brulé is seen regularly on national PBS affiliates across the country. Their history-making concert, “Brulé, Live at Mount Rushmore—Concert for Reconciliation of the Cultures”, has become the longest running Native American concert special on national TV.
Brulé produced over 70 episodes of the TV Program “Hidden Heritage” for RFD-TV. RFDTV is a cable TV network that broadcasts to over 40 million homes across the United States and international markets. The show “Hidden Heritage” presents positive stories from across Native America. A keynote presentation and workshop series has also been developed that encompasses the full body of Brulé work over the past 26 years. The presentation examines Brulé's mission of reconciliation of the cultures and focuses on the current state of Native America as it attempts to merge into the mainstream entertainment industry.
