Think Global: Native America

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
There have been very few good compilations of Native American music, but this one gets the balance right, catching the breadth of sound that's possible, whether it's the pow-wow of Thunder Hill's "Contest Song," the ethereal flute of R.

Although a lot of Native American music is dismissed as new age, the selections and artists here make a strong case for it as something much deeper and resonant, from the peyote singers like Johnny Mike to singer and guitarist Joanne Shenandoah, one of the most widely known Indian artists.

Anyone looking for a strong introduction to Native American music should look no further.
