KRFF promo and introduction video

Voice of Denali was created by the Athabascan Fiddlers Association (AFA). The AFA is well known for organizing and carrying out the annual Fiddlers Festival in the fall in Fairbanks, Alaska. This celebration of Athabascan music, culture and traditions brings hundreds of Athabascan Natives and others from throughout Alaska’s Interior for four-days of cultural and musical celebration. Musicians come together from far and wide to play, and listen, to the best music around. While they are playing and listening they are also sharing, which helps the AFA meets its important mission.

The Future and Growing Beyond the Fiddlers Festival

While the AFA is most well-known for the Fiddlers Festival, its mission is much more expansive, with the festival being only one mechanism for sharing, perpetuating and preserving the culture of the Interior’s indigenous peoples. Recognizing this, the board of AFA has been actively engaged in envisioning a bigger future, and specifically how it can better meet its mission.

The Voice of Denali radio station offers an outlet to expand upon AFA’s current reach, establishing a sustainable, culturally-focused, public radio presence in Alaska’s Interior. Utilizing the airwaves,

Voice of Denali will broadcast music and information, and connecting people from all across Alaska’s vast Interior region to share, perpetuate and preserve Athabascan culture and traditions.
