Navajo Songs from Canyon De Chelly

Composer(s): Traditional
Album Title: Navajo Songs from Canyon De Chelly 
Cat. No.: 80406
Genre: Traditional
Description: Produced and annotated by Charlotte Heth, a member of the Cherokee nation of Oklahoma and a noted ethnomusicologist.

This disc offers ceremonial and social music of the Navajo Indians from the Four Corners area of northern Arizona, northwestern New Mexico, and southeastern Utah. As members of the largest Indian nation in both population and land area, many Navajos still speak only their native language, and most others, although they may be bilingual and bicultural, still cherish their songs, dances, and rituals. Woven into the fabric of everyday life, Navajo songs not only reinforce ancient beliefs but also serve as entertainment.
