ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
NAMMY (Native American Music Awards) and ISMA (Indian Summer Music Awards) nominated Clear water Drum continues their ground-breaking explorations of high energy danceable (just try to keep still!) Native/Folk combination with their latest CD of all original songs, Adasegogisdi (Victory). Staying true to their roots singing on the drum at powwows, the big powwow drum beat anchors every song. Layered over the driving beat of the drum and the shakers are mandolin, guitar, bass, banjo, Strumstick and Irish bouzouki.

"I always love hearing your music. It always makes me 'Feel Good' deep down. It makes me feel happy and connected. Your music is inspiring and healing in a way I can not explain. It heals the spirit. It is like a banquet of the best food, but for the soul and spirit instead of my tummy." -- Deb Taylor-Johnson

If you haven't heard their music before, then you haven't heard music like this. But Clear Water's music is more than a high energy celebration of dance and joy -- it carries a deep spiritual message. This is what they've written on their liner notes:

Warriors or soldiers are those willing to sacrifice just about everything except their truth, their way of being or their commitment.
The difference they wish to make is a change to undo wrong or to make life better.

General George Patton praised 1st Nations Troops as the nation’s highest Military honors.  Minnie Spotted Wolf was the first 1st Nations woman in the Marine Corps.  Lori Piestewa was the first 1st Nations woman to die in combat in Operation Iraq.
They proudly served their country. 

Not all warriors are soldiers. Wilma Mankiller was the first Woman Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation. She fought hard for her People to make changes. Sequoyah fought years of discouragement to create a written language for his people. Leonard Peltier fought hard for his People’s rights.

These are a few First Nations People who were who fought against discouragement & conflict for their People. They had strong
convictions.

Not all battles end in victory (Adasegogisdi). When someone wins, someone else loses. Some became POW/MIA. Where would we be if we did not have those who stood up & said, “There’s something wrong here & we have to change it”?
