Sacred Steel | Chicago Reader

Sacred Steel

The steel guitar was invented in Hawaii in the 1880s, but a half century later it was adopted by musicians of the House of God, Keith Dominion, a Pentecostal denomination with churches in 26 states. This video by Robert L. Stone includes interviews with House of God musicians who talk about the instrument's effectiveness, but the best sections show how it's used in religious services, its crying sound accompanied by the worshipers' singing and dancing, voices and bodies merging with the music in an expression of communal joy. 52 min.
