Synopsis

Amazon.com
With Peacemaker's Journey, Native American artist Joanne Shenandoah may well have made a recording that will appeal even to those who've previously been dismissive of the genre. Voted Best Female Artist in both 1998 and '99 at the Native American Music Awards, Shenandoah has even topped herself with this concept album that chronicles the Iroquois legend of the Peacemaker. Elements of the story, as written in the fine liner notes, correspond with Biblical tales of the Christ Child, Lazarus, and even Moses. Understated, graceful, and universal in appeal, the artist's magnificent vocals are married with a warm array of both Native American and classical instruments. Peacemaker's Journey is pure magic. --Paige La Grone

CD Reviews

Beautiful Melodies and quiet strength
Guardian of the Zen Sea | Looking after the sun and surf | 03/11/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent CD from Joanne Shenandoah. As usual the vocals are elegant, and this time there is a fairly rich, but folk-like musical accompanyment. Singing in her native language the songs tell of peace for all, born and yet to be, and the music provides a strong support. My only complaint is that the music and poetry are so haunting, I wish I knew what the lyrics said. But, I admit my predjudice....I like lyrics! A peaceful, gentle journey is always a blessing."

"This CD is so very beautiful, it not only touches your heart, but melts it. Not only is the story well told, and the music so well done, but the illustrations are incredible. I am grateful to Joanne Shenandoah for bringing this peaceful message to us at a time when it is so greatly needed."
