Robbie Robertson "Music for the Native Americans" Capitol Records. A must for all the fans of Native American music. A classic ! If you don't have it, go for it, you won't regret Clic on CD covers to order them.

SILVER WAVE RECORDS SD-917 "The Offering" by Mary Youngblood. A great artist, among the first Native women flutists, Mary Youngblood is from Aleut and Seminole Nations. Beautiful album of natural sounds with only the Native flute in an underground womb of Mother Earth, perfect for a healing feminine energy. Let's remember a great Maya Elder, Grandmother Windrider, who used to say that women should heal themselves first in order to heal the men afterwards. This woman music is a good way to start the process, since in America there are over 50% of collapsed couples, the family unit, base of a healthy society, is on the verge of extinction.

A noter to spécialement une nouvelle artiste, Aleut et Seminole, une des première femmes Indiennes à produire un album de flûte traditionnelle, enregistrée dans une caverne/matrice à l'acoustique propre à donner une énergie de guérison féminine. Une des anciennes de la Nation Maya, Grandmère Windrider, a insisté en 1999 sur l'urgence pour les femmes de se guérir entre elles d'abord, pour guérir les hommes ensuite. Cette société est malade, avec plus de 50% de séparation pour les couples. Cette belle musique harmonique est à écouter de plus en plus, pour commencer un processus de guérison des relations.

Silver Wave SD920 "Wolves" The Soundtrack of the fabulous IMAX movie, with Robbie Robertson, Primeaux and Mike, Joanne Shenandoah, Mary Youngblood, Walela and many other great artists. Well 5 wolves at least for that record !

More to come from Silver Wave Records
