Lakota Sacred Songs (BLUE)
Sung as in Ceremony
The songs presented are those featured in Howard Bad Hand's book Native American Healing. These songs are typically used in a type of ceremony known as Lowampi (singing), also referred to as a "house ceremony". On this CD, Howard, using a hand drum, and Tom Teegarden sing the songs with the pace, style, and volume that might be used in an actual ceremony.
There is a companion CD where Howard sings the songs slowly with clearer enunciation to assist non-Lakota speakers in learning them. English translations of the songs are included in the CD booklet.
