CD Reviews

Excuse You
02/08/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"First, the name is Southern Cree, not Southern Thunder.
Second, the type of music on this CD is Powwow music, something I do not gather the other respondents know too much about! For you to say that it sounds like one long song chopped up into different tracks is your ignorance of what Native American powwow music is. If you prefer flute music that's great but do not make judgements on music and different styles of Native music that you know nothing about. Get your background information together before disgracing this type of music and showcasing your ignorance. Thank you.
Third, I thought the CD was great. For true listeners of powwow music, it does NOT sound like one long song--true listeners are able to recognize different verses, meanings and types of songs presented on the CD. Again, do not take for granted this beautiful expression of Native American spirit and way of life."
