Indian Calling’s new Native American music album has recently been released by the label Maxy Sound
. After the big success of “Indian Calling”, the group (of the same name) publishes a new Cd entitled “Indians”. The release is a collection of traditional Indian tunes re-arranged with modern sounds. The CD starts with the song Yeha Noha (Wishes of happiness and prosperity). This song was released for the first time by the German group called Sacred Spirit, in 1995. It’s a remixed version of the Navajo Shoe Game song. The song describes the Giant's (Yé'iitsoh)
lament at the owl's attempt to cheat by stealing the yucca ball. The original myth describes a game played among the day and night animals in which the animals who discovered in which shoe a yucca ball was hidden would win a permanent state of daylight or night.The lyrics of the song are:... shaa ninánóh'aah
(you give it back to me)... Yé'iitsoh jinínáá léi'
(... The Giant says again and again...)... ninánóh'aah
(...give it back). The second track is “Lakota Lullaby” which words are “cante' waste' hoksila ake istimba, hanhepi kin waste'”: good hearted boy go back to sleep, the night is good. Dakota (also Dakhota) is a Siouan language (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siouan_languages
) spoken by the Dakota people (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dakota_people
) of the Sioux (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sioux
) tribes. A big news on this album is the Cherokee version of the traditional Amazing Grace, arranged with Native Indian sounds and performed by Alison. The song “Women’s Brush Dance” is a contemporary interpretation of the Brush Dance, a ceremony held to heal a sick child or to pray for a long, healthy life for the child. Other than the awesome “Indians”, “Dakota Rainbow”, the striking atmosphere of “At War” and the joyful mood of “Blessed Valley”, the album also includes the big hit tune “Dawa” (The Cradle Song) and the romantic “Zuni Sunrise”, performed on Indian Flute. For Contemporary Native American Music lovers and people who want to start listening to this fantastic genre of music, this is definitely a very good product. Highly recommended!!
