Yolanda Martinez is Apache/Comanche/Hispanic born in Southern New Mexico. She is an Artist, Singer, Composer, and Master Drum Maker. She was one of 11 children and was raised in New Mexico untill the age of 15, when her family moved to the San Joaquin Valley, California, in 1965.
In 1986 Spirit sent a message for her to make a Drum. Yolanda made her first drum in 1987. This turned out to be a base drum made out of a redwood planter. She thought she had completed her task, and was ready to move on. Great Spirit still kept after her to “MAKE DRUMS”!
After a lot of frustration, prayers, tears, and a near death experience she decided to surrender and let Spirit guide her, this is when she started creating Authentic Native American Drums that wake up your soul, and balance and connect you with Earth Mothers rhythms in nature, Her heartbeat, and song.
In summer of 1975 Yolanda was drawn to Alaska where she spent 8 years on the Island of Kodiak where she was one of the first Commercial Fishing Women, as back then women were not allowed on fishing boats. In 1980 she decided to move her and her daughter back to California where she started the Central Valley Moon Lodges in Modesto.
In 1993 she moved to Asheville, NC where she spent 6 years in the beautiful forest of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This beautiful, magical land is what inspired her to create and write her music. Yolanda currently resides in Las Cruces, New Mexico, her beautiful home state with the Organ Mountains in her back yard, beautiful sunsets, and glorious nights. She is continuing her work and is conducting Drum Making Workshops, Drumming Circles, Women’s Circles and Concerts nationally and internationally.
Yolanda has been very active in teaching and organizing the spiritual way of the woman and the balance between herself, her family and Mother Earth. Using her Drums and her Songs, Yolanda works through her music.
