Achieve a greater understanding of Native American culture with this release that takes a closer look at the very heart of the Pow-wow tradition. A cultural vessel that utilizes song in passing down tradition through the generations, the music of the Pow-wow doesn't rely on specific words as much as it does the sound. In imbuing the songs with a mystical element which is said to touch the souls of all living creatures, Native Americans pass along tales of bravery, remarkable achievements, and life's simple pleasures so that the spirit of their culture will live on indefinitely. Even without the specific words, the meaning of the songs still carries an unmistakable message to all that truly listen.
