Overview

Joanne Shenandoah is a beautiful woman with a beautiful soul. Fittingly, she also has a beautiful voice with which she expresses her spirit and heart. Orenda, an Iroquois word meaning "the soul of all things," features her sweet vocals in harmony with Lawrence Laughing. She sings these ceremonial songs in their native languages. The instrumental accompaniment, by Tom Wasinger and Mark McCoin, is subtle and low-key. This is Shenandoah's CD. Her gentle style is both dynamic and serene. It fills the heart and soul of the listener. Laughing's harmonies are smooth and graceful. This is an excellent CD. It will appeal to fans of Walela and Mary Youngblood.

The combination of the songs selected and the vocals of both artists truly take you on a journey of emotional bliss. The first song sets a wonderful tone for the cd. There is not one song that did not move my spirit. I enjoy listening to these songs without any interuptions. The only thing I was disappointed in was that the words to the songs were not written in english on the inside cover so I could know the meanings. I am very happy though that they were sung in their native language. What an uplifting work of art this is.
