CD Reviews

Fabulous!!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I LOVE this cd! I discovered it many years ago and it turned me on to learning Navajo. In turn, I introduced Sharon's music (and other music of Native Americans) to many, many people. Her songs tell of the spirit of love, deep devotion to the land and Her People, and the relationships within the family and tribe. This music strikes a very deep chord (pun intended) within me. I highly recommend it to devotees of the language and culture of our Indigenous Peoples."
Superior album!

"A one in a million type album that definately should be heard by everyone! Very soothing and peaceful. Highly recommended for those stressful people who need a relaxing night to themselves."
Chipper and Uplifting

"Sharon Burch has a chipper voice and an uplifting style of music. The happy songs on this album are so communicative and sincere, that even the ones which are sung in Navajo - you'll still understand them. When this artist sings, she should remind you of your childhood best friend. Friendly and chipper, warm and honest - in fact, in a certain way, as you're listening to the album and the songs get woven into your life, you'll feel as though she IS a friend of yours. These songs offer a simple, optimistic outlook on life that is healthy and contageous. Sometimes it sounds as though she's singing you a sweet lullaby, sometimes it sounds like she's inviting you to play. Some of the songs are in English, others are in Navajo, and some are a mix. All of them are treasures. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys Native American music or to anyone who is looking for a package of gentle, chipper songs to perk up her life."
