ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
2017 INDIAN SUMMER MUSIC AWARDS - Best Spiritual & Best Traditional Vocal!
2017 NATIVE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS - Best Folk Nominee!

The theme of this album embraces women as life-givers. Women’s inner strengths and attributes as caregivers are the sinews which bind families together. Listen to the drum, feel the rhythm, absorb the harmonies, and these songs will help heal and soothe the spirit. Songs are good medicine.

A contemporary blend of melodic songs in Cherokee and English. Beautiful harmonies and instrumentals that invite the listener to feel intimacy with our Earth Mother and a stronger connection with Creator.

OTSIGEYA DISC 2
Otsigeya "We Women” (Oh-gee-gay-yah) A women’s drum group, Otsigeya presents fresh, original and inspirational women’s songs in a traditional style.

Magic!
Keeper of the Family is a magical CD to listen to! All original songs and performed in a combination of English and Cherokee languages. I am hooked! I love every song. The two CDs are completely different and yet they are both so fun to listen to. Before I wear out the CDs , I'm hoping to be able to sing along with all the words--not just the English words! I'm getting the 'Colors are Everywhere' down!! Great listening and a great gift idea! Great job Shining Woman!!

Sweet and Soulful
I love the emphasis on the Cherokee traditions: sweet love of family, love of land and Mother Earth, gratitude for all we have. Lovely blend of instrumentation and vocals, modern and traditional styles, Cherokee and English languages.

Inspirational!
I am fascinated by the songs on "Shining Woman". The diversity in the melodies and the mix of instrumental music is awesome! These songs reflect the strength and tenderness of women, the beauties of nature, and the gifts from our Creator. "Otsigeya" also echoes the beat of the Mother Drum that resonates in the hearts of every singer. You can feel the sisterhood and true bond between these marvelous women. Thank you for this contribution of love, joy, and dedication to your heritage. Everyone who buys this CD will immediately experience an uplifted spirit...... learn the lyrics and sing along to bring joy to your day!!
