  • Native American Traditional Cree Music

    55:03

    Native American music plays a vital role in history and education, with ceremonies and stories orally passing on ancestral customs to new generations. Native American ceremonial music is traditionally said to originate from deities or spirits, or from particularly respected individuals. Rituals are shaped by every aspect of song, dance and costuming, and each aspect informs about the makers, wearers and symbols important to the nation, tribe, village, clan, family, or individual. Native Americans perform stories through song, music and dance, and the historical facts thus propagated are an integral part of Native American beliefs. Epic legends and stories about culture heroes are a part of tribal music traditions, and these tales are often an iconic part of local culture.

  • Native American Sleep Music: canyon flute & nocturnal canyon sounds, sleep meditation

    9:9:09

    The Native American Flute can transport one to a more relaxed and calm state, especially after listening for 10 minutes or more. This feeling is known as the ‘alpha’ state, a state during which your brain is pulsing at a lower rate than your mental and emotional fluctuations. (Price, Creating and Using the Native American Love Flute, 1994). One of the most impactful ways to develop this alpha state, is by focusing on the breath. During our daily activities this can be a challenge, as due to our busy lives, our minds end up operating mostly in the ‘beta’ state. In this state, your conscious mind is dominant and your subconscious mind can’t break through to help you out, as it can when you are asleep. So, people who are able and trained to maintain a prolonged alpha state can deal with life much more effectively than people who are usually in beta (Price, Creating and Using the Native American Love Flute, 1994). In this way, native flute can lead you to develop more coordination, intuition, and intelligence. One of the main reasons for this is because listening to the flute encourages one to sit and ‘be with the breath’.

    We’re devoted to grow a place where you can return whenever you need to relax and heal.

    3 HOURS Native Americans' Music | Spirit of Freedom |. Enjoy this awesome music and relax. Use it in background for Sound Therapy, Meditation and Yoga practices, Stress Relief and Dreaming. Please subscribe and share.

    Music lies at the heart of Indian culture. From birth to death, all occasions, sacred and secular, personal and tribal, in the life of the Plains Indian are inextricably intertwined with musical performances. Native American music is the music that is used, created or performed by Native Americans in the United States and First Nations people of Canada, specifically traditional tribal music. In addition to the traditional music of the Native American groups, there now exist pan-tribal and inter-tribal genres as well as distinct Native American subgenres of popular music including: rock, blues, hip hop, classical, film music, and reggae, as well as unique popular styles like waila (chicken scratch).
    Singing and percussion are the most important aspects of traditional Native American music. Vocalization takes many forms, ranging from solo and choral song to responsorial, unison and multipart singing. Percussion, especially drums and rattles, are common accompaniment to keep the rhythm steady for the singers, who generally use their native language or non-lexical vocables (nonsense syllables). Traditional music usually begins with slow and steady beats that grow gradually faster and more emphatic, while various flourishes like drum and rattle tremolos, shouts and accented patterns add variety and signal changes in performance for singers and dancers

  • Native American Flute Music: Meditation Music for Shamanic Astral Projection, Healing Music

    9:9:09

    Native American Flute Music: Meditation Music for Shamanic Astral Projection, Healing Music

    Shamanism is a system for psychic, emotional, and spiritual healing and for exploration, discovery, and knowledge gathering about non-material worlds and states of mind. Shamanism is a technique of ecstasy in which the spirit of the shaman leaves the body and travels to communicate with spirit helpers and other beings for the purpose of obtaining knowledge, power, or healing.

    Shamanic Astral Projection or Shamanic Journeying is an altered state of consciousness wherein you enter a realm called non-ordinary reality. By journeying you can gather knowledge and perform healing in ways that are not accessible in ordinary waking reality.

    How does shamanism work?

    Some people think that in shamanic healing journeying, the spirit leaves the body and a person is being healed by spirit helpers. Others think that shamanic journeying allows access to one's own intuition, which may otherwise be drowned out by the prattle of everyday thinking or by anxiety; and that it is a way of engaging a person's subconscious desires for healing.

    Shamanic healing may not cure physical or psychological illness, but it may help one gain psychic energy that will allow one better to handle illness. Shamanic healing therefore is best used in conjunction with other treatments, not as a substitute for them.

    Connection with a Power Animal

    A power animal protects you physically and provides you with emotional support, wisdom, and vital energy. Some people think a power animal is a spirit being that stays with you because it cares for you and enjoys being able to experience life in a physical body. Others think a power animal is a symbol for one's subconscious wisdom. Almost everybody has a power animal; some have several. (Perhaps you had an invisible animal friend as a child or have always been fascinated with a particular kind of animal. This animal may be your Power Animal).

    A person may, in the course of life, lose contact with the power animal, thereby losing the animal's protection, wisdom, and energy. If you lose contact with your Power Animal, you may feel dispirited, or you may become sick easily.

    The Shamanic Astral Projection technique of Power Animal Retrieval can restore a person's connection to a Power Animal. A person can also journey to find his or her own Power Animal. To maintain a connection with your Power Animal, take the time to learn about your animal, learn to feel its presence, communicate with it, and honor it by doing things that it enjoys.

    Free flow of emotional and physical energy

    Health requires a free flow of energy that one can use to accomplish one's desires in the world. But one's energy can become blocked in various ways.

    People who have lost parts of their life essence, who have been ill, who have lost connection with a Power Animal, or who are regularly exposed to emotionally stressful situations are vulnerable to intrusions or psychic infections that block a person's connection with self or drain a person's energy.

    An intrusion can be thought of either as a foreign energy being that takes up residence in a person's psychic body (a psychic infection), or as a psychic structure (an emotional wall or barrier) that a person built to keep herself safe from harm, but that now is blocking some of his/her energy expression. A person with an intrusion might feel drained or ill, might have aches and pains, might have nightmares or other fears. A shamanic healer can find and remove intrusions and barriers in a healing ritual called extraction.

    A sense of purpose

    A sense of purpose is necessary to happiness. The person who loves and cares about the world and fellow beings, who wants to make some small part of the universe a better place, has a sense of purpose. A person can find a sense of purpose in life by seeking knowledge and direction through shamanic journeys, divinations, and rituals. One can do this alone, or with a group of people engaged in similar quests. A shamanic healer or counselor can't find another person's purpose, but can help one seek and interpret information.

    C-WEED BIOGRAPHY

    Errol Ranville was born in Ste. Rose du Lac, Manitoba on August 1, 1953.
    He comes from a large family of twelve siblings; nine brothers and three sisters.

    In 1965, Errol started a band in high school and played for local school and community dances. The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Buffy Ste Marie heavily influenced him and his later influences were Merle Haggard, Lynard Skynard, Pink Floyd, and Jackson Brown. In 1969, his parents moved the family to Winnipeg where he completed his high school and later went onto university to obtain his Bachelor of Social Work Degree.

    In 1975, Errol started The C-Weed Band which he named after his own nickname C-Weed. The band released their first album in 1980 and had a # 1 single on Canadian Country Radio with a song written by Robbie Robertson called Evangeline. Their second album High and Dry was released in 1982 and they enjoyed another # 1 single across Canada with a song written by Jagger-Richards called High and Dry. The release of third album in 1983 is when Errol's songwriting came to form. Four of Errol's original songs received full A radio airplay rotation across Canada and all four songs reached the top 10 singles charts. Play Me My Favorite Song , Bring'n Home The Good Times, Pick up Truck Cowboy and Magic in The Music. The band received a Juno nomination in both 1985 and '86. After working alongside his brothers Wally and Donn Ranville for 12 years they decided to go their separate ways in 1987. .

    Over the next few years, Errol wrote and sang all the songs and with his nickname being C-Weed and carried on the band name to the present. He also started a night club business called, C-Weed's cabaret, in 1992.With locations in Winnipeg (1992-1997) Edmonton, Alberta (1997-98) and opened in Saskatoon Saskatchewan (1999 -2001).

    Errol released his first solo project in 1988 called A Tribute to Southern Rock with only one original song included on the project called Old Rodeo Cowboys, which received cross Canada radio air play as well as a music video aired on Much Music. He then released two more solo projects under his own name Errol Ranville called I Wanna Fly (1990) and The Cowboy Code (1995). Which is when he also started his own record label. His songwriting ability really shined when the song I Wanna Fly was named song of the year by the Manitoba Country Music Awards and the music video received full time airplay on Much Music.

    Errol formed another band in 1998, to work on a new album called Run As One. The album was released in May 2000 and has sold over 13,000 units to date. It was also nominated for a Juno award in March 2001. His new band included; Mitch Daigneault (new CD Keep On Believing May 2003) a singer/songwriter and lead guitarist who has played with Errol for many years, Kevin Joseph, a young bass guitar player, Errol's brother Donn who were one of the original members of The C-Weed Band and talented, Jay Ross, also toured with The C-Weed Band in the summer of 2003.

    In 2002, Errol produced and recorded Keep on Believing by Mitch Daigneult and Old Town by Jay Ross. Both albums received Canada wide airplay and both got nominated for a Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards (Nov.28th/03 in Toronto). He spent most of 2003 touring and promoting the two new albums and took his band to Toronto to attend the 2003 Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards where they performed at the legendary Elmocombo Club. Since the release of Run As One, Errol has produced albums for Mitch Daigneault, Jay Ross and Brent Peekeekoot, as well as mentoring and promoting new Aboriginal talent such as singer/songwriter, J.C. Campbell. In November 2004, Errol Ranville was awarded the Canadian Aboriginal Lifetime Achievement Award at the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards in Toronto. On April 1, 2005, he was inducted into the Manitoba Aboriginal Music Hall of Fame.

    Errol has also work for the Manitoba Audio Recording Industry Association, in Winnipeg as the Aboriginal Music Program Director. He was also instrumental in convincing the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards to tour Canada. He has also been chair of the Manitoba Aboriginal Music Host Committee, which brought the 8th Annual Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards in Winnipeg November 3, 2006. This was the first year the awards were held outside Toronto.

    It is wonderful to be working full time in the music industry says Errol Ranville But playing music and singing songs is still my first love, and always will be.

    C-WEED BIOGRAPHY

    Errol Ranville was born in Ste. Rose du Lac, Manitoba on August 1, 1953.
    He comes from a large family of twelve siblings; nine brothers and three sisters.

    In 1965, Errol started a band in high school and played for local school and community dances. The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Buffy Ste Marie heavily influenced him and his later influences were Merle Haggard, Lynard Skynard, Pink Floyd, and Jackson Brown. In 1969, his parents moved the family to Winnipeg where he completed his high school and later went onto university to obtain his Bachelor of Social Work Degree.

    In 1975, Errol started The C-Weed Band which he named after his own nickname C-Weed. The band released their first album in 1980 and had a # 1 single on Canadian Country Radio with a song written by Robbie Robertson called Evangeline. Their second album High and Dry was released in 1982 and they enjoyed another # 1 single across Canada with a song written by Jagger-Richards called High and Dry. The release of third album in 1983 is when Errol's songwriting came to form. Four of Errol's original songs received full A radio airplay rotation across Canada and all four songs reached the top 10 singles charts. Play Me My Favorite Song , Bring'n Home The Good Times, Pick up Truck Cowboy and Magic in The Music. The band received a Juno nomination in both 1985 and '86. After working alongside his brothers Wally and Donn Ranville for 12 years they decided to go their separate ways in 1987. .

    Over the next few years, Errol wrote and sang all the songs and with his nickname being C-Weed and carried on the band name to the present. He also started a night club business called, C-Weed's cabaret, in 1992.With locations in Winnipeg (1992-1997) Edmonton, Alberta (1997-98) and opened in Saskatoon Saskatchewan (1999 -2001).

    Errol released his first solo project in 1988 called A Tribute to Southern Rock with only one original song included on the project called Old Rodeo Cowboys, which received cross Canada radio air play as well as a music video aired on Much Music. He then released two more solo projects under his own name Errol Ranville called I Wanna Fly (1990) and The Cowboy Code (1995). Which is when he also started his own record label. His songwriting ability really shined when the song I Wanna Fly was named song of the year by the Manitoba Country Music Awards and the music video received full time airplay on Much Music.

    Errol formed another band in 1998, to work on a new album called Run As One. The album was released in May 2000 and has sold over 13,000 units to date. It was also nominated for a Juno award in March 2001. His new band included; Mitch Daigneault (new CD Keep On Believing May 2003) a singer/songwriter and lead guitarist who has played with Errol for many years, Kevin Joseph, a young bass guitar player, Errol's brother Donn who were one of the original members of The C-Weed Band and talented, Jay Ross, also toured with The C-Weed Band in the summer of 2003.

    In 2002, Errol produced and recorded Keep on Believing by Mitch Daigneult and Old Town by Jay Ross. Both albums received Canada wide airplay and both got nominated for a Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards (Nov.28th/03 in Toronto). He spent most of 2003 touring and promoting the two new albums and took his band to Toronto to attend the 2003 Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards where they performed at the legendary Elmocombo Club. Since the release of Run As One, Errol has produced albums for Mitch Daigneault, Jay Ross and Brent Peekeekoot, as well as mentoring and promoting new Aboriginal talent such as singer/songwriter, J.C. Campbell. In November 2004, Errol Ranville was awarded the Canadian Aboriginal Lifetime Achievement Award at the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards in Toronto. On April 1, 2005, he was inducted into the Manitoba Aboriginal Music Hall of Fame.

    Errol has also work for the Manitoba Audio Recording Industry Association, in Winnipeg as the Aboriginal Music Program Director. He was also instrumental in convincing the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards to tour Canada. He has also been chair of the Manitoba Aboriginal Music Host Committee, which brought the 8th Annual Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards in Winnipeg November 3, 2006. This was the first year the awards were held outside Toronto.

    It is wonderful to be working full time in the music industry says Errol Ranville But playing music and singing songs is still my first love, and always will be.

  • Spotlight: Indigenous Music Residency 2018

    6:22

    The competitive, confusing and sometimes cutthroat world of independent music can be hard for emerging artists to navigate. Thanks to Manitoba Music and Canada Council for the Arts, the next generation of Indigenous talent is in good hands.

    Earlier this year, the Indigenous Music Residency invited artists from around the country to take part in a full week of skill sharing, mentorship and networking. In addition to one-on-one consultations, they received insights on everything from music production and royalties to social media management and touring from industry experts and successful professional musicians.
    In the latest DD Spotlight, we explore what the residency means for the next wave of Indigenous music.
