Music from Native Americans
WATER - One of the elements sacred to all existence, offering us the gift of life. Native people have always honored and respected the natural world. If we take from nature, we give back with prayers and songs. There are ceremonies for water spirits. When it rains, we pray and give thanks to the creator for the wonderful rainy day and for everything that will grow. The salmon have a song they sing as they travel together. Moving water has a song all its own that inspires song in ourselves. Drink in the beauty of this music. Water is life.
Features songs by Joseph Fire Crow, Keith Bear, Primeaux and Mike, Andrew Vasquez, Burning Sky, Mary Youngblood, Peter Kater & R. Carlos Nakai, Kevin Locke, Robert Mirabal, and others.
