All Music Guide - Jim Brenholts
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.

    Music that caresses your soul

    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.
