  • This album was recorded by Native American artists who carry on the musical traditions passed down to them from their ancestors. In many Native American cultures, these musicians play a role in traditional ceremonies that serve as prayers for blessings and rain. Their music is appreciated around the world for its unique and beautiful sound and its role in preserving an important cultural legacy.
  • Many Native American artists are inspired by their rich cultural history and the traditions of art, dance, community and cuisine that have carefully been passed down for generations. From colorful shell bead work and mosaic inlay to Navajo weaving and Pueblo pottery, there are many art forms that are unique to the Pueblo people of New Mexico and tribes of the Southwest. Native American artists are inspired to preserve these traditional art forms, using them to tell stories of their history and culture while also preserving the high standards of craftsmanship that make their work distinctive, valuable and lasting. This CD comes with a 24 page color booklet with extensive background notes, photos and comments by the singers.
