Ulali has created a new genre of Native American Music. Known for their unusual harmonies and wide vocal and musical range, Ulali's sound encompasses an array of indigenous music including southeast choral singing (pre-blues and gospel) and pre-Colombian (before the borders) music.

Many of the same songs as on the CD titled "Walela." Those songs share the same review: A collection of songs harmonized by three beautiful voices. Soothing soulful songs that lift your spirits. Haunting, stunning, beautiful and moving.

Covenant

Artist - Author: 
Joanne Shenandoah

These songs honor the Covenant between humankind and the earth riveting music that masterfully weaves original compositions and powerful messages from the ancient Iroquois prophecy. On this progressive recording Joanne Shenandoah's enchanting voice is backed with percussive grooves, vivid string arrangements, and tribal sounds in a modern style that ranges from dance to trance.

Peace and Power

Artist - Author: 
Joanne Shenandoah

Although Shenandoah has several recordings in a more conventional folk-singer vein, Peace & Power draws from her four most evocative, atmospheric albums: Matriarch, Orenda, Peacemaker's Journey and Lifeblood. Both pianist Peter Kater, who produced Lifeblood, and Tom Wasinger, producer of the other three, successfully frame Shenandoah's simple songs in detailed arrangements.

Peacemaker's Journey

Artist - Author: 
Joanne Shenandoah

The world in which we live has caused us all to think of our children and of those yet unborn. In light of all the violence, war and pressure placed on the children of the 20th century, I was compelled to compose songs which tell the story of our beloved Peacemaker who helped bring peace to the Haudenosaunee, the People of the Longhouse, known also as the Iroquois.

"My natural name, Tekalihwa: khwa (TEK-YA-WHA-WHA) was given to me as a small child. In the Oneida language it means "She Sings".
