If a younger head singer is leading, then he usually brings singers from his drum group to help and you will hear mostly songs from their drum.

When you go to the larger mega powwows and there is a drum contest, expect all the newer, drum specific songs to be sung.

Ok...having broke it down like that for me...how often do you see the "younger" head singers?
