"What kind of 'Indians' is this all about?” the concert-goer might ask. The American Indians, the original inhabitants of the continent! Paying a visit to Paris in November 1725, Chief Agapit Chicagou and his companions were received by King Louis XV. They also performed their dances at the Théâtre-Italien. In the audience was Jean-Philippe Rameau, who was directly inspired by this experience to compose Les Indes galantes.
