Blue Desert Tour

The brain child of Diné jazz artist Delbert Anderson, the mission of the Blue Desert Tour is to promote healing within Indigenous communities in the Four Corners area. The Tour is a collaboration between Indigenous-led jazz bands.  It is produced in partnership with gallupARTS, the Northwest New Mexico Arts Council, and the Cortez Cultural Center. It is funded by Chamber Music America. 

The first annual Blue Desert Tour took place virtually in April 2021. The second annual was held in May 2022.
