Round Dance Songs Recorded "Live"
Northern Cree and Friends
For the Cree peoples of northern Saskatchewan and Alberta, the cold months of winter are round dance times. People from near and far gather for these traditional social dances held indoors that last through the night. Filled with humor and good feelings, the songs that accompany the dance utilize soaring vocals set to the vibrant pulse of hand drums. With this recording, the Blackstone Singers of Sweetgrass, Saskatchewan, perform a special selection of their latest round dance songs.
