Prayer for Peace

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kerry Dexter
From the opening notes of Joanne Shenandoah's inviting alto on her original song "Peace and Power," it's evident that the music on this compilation is meant not so much to speak of peace, or even to pray for it, but to instill it. The warmth of Shenandoah's song, sung in her native Iroquois, reminds that it is from a place of peace that we make our best decisions. Pianist Peter Kater and flutist R.

Robert Mirabal's combination of flute, cello, guitar, percussion, and chanted vocals which make up "Painted Caves" offer a rhythmic door to contemplation, while Alice Gomez' stately "Pyramid Temples" combines percussion and pan pipes in a sound hinting of ancient Andean dances. Michael Cusson, Lawrence Laughing, and Mary Youngblood also contribute their music to the project, which unlike many collections of previously released tracks, works together as an integrated whole.

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Prayer for Peace features a variety of world music artists performing songs with a peaceful message. Some of the featured performers include Joanne Shenandoah ("Peace and Power"), R. Carlos Nakai and Peter Kater ("Surrender"), Mary Youngblood ("Yuba"), and Robert Mirabal ("Painted Cave"), along with several others. Many of the performers compose their own songs, and there are a number of duets featured on this compilation. This collection is best intended for those who already appreciate the Silver Wave label's roster of artists; however, it is likely to also please anyone who appreciates world music in general.
