  • Rosita Serrano - Roter Mohn

    3:09

    Performed by: Rosita Serrano

    Full Song Title: Roter Mohn

    Recorded in: 1938

    Rosita Serrano (born María Martha Esther Aldunate del Campo, 1914 -- 1997) was a Chilean singer who had her biggest success in Nazi Germany between the 1930s and the early 1940s. Because of her bell-like voice and pitch-perfect whistling she received the nickname Chilenische Nachtigall (Chilean Nightingale).

    Rosita Serano was born in Viña del Mar, Chile on 10 June 1914. Her father Héctor Aldunate was in the diplomatic service. With her mother Sofía del Campo who was a popular opera singer she moved to Europe in the early 1930s. Initially they lived in Portugal and France but by 1936 they moved to Berlin. Serrano had her first successes in the Wintergarten and the Metropol Theater where she performed Chilean folk songs. During that time she was discovered by German composer Peter Kreuder who managed that she got a record contract at the German Telefunken. Henceforth she performed in the German language including popular songs like Roter Mohn (Red poppy), Schön die Musik (Beautiful Music), Küß mich, bitte, bitte, küß mich (Kiss me, please, please kiss me), Und die Musik spielt dazu (And the Music plays to it), Der Onkel Jonathan (The uncle Jonathan), and Der kleine Liebesvogel (The little love bird). By 1938 she received roles in the revue films Es leuchten die Sterne (1938), Bel Ami (1939), Der vierte kommt nicht (1939), Die kluge Schwiegermutter (1939), Herzensfreud -- Herzensleid (1940) and Anita und der Teufel (1941). Her appearance in Herzensfreud -- Herzensleid was in a co-starring role with actor Paul Hoerbiger. Between film shoots, she went on tour with two popular dance orchestras, one led by Kurt Hohenberger and the other by Teddy Stauffer. Due to the intercession of Joseph Goebbels, she got gigs in the radio show Wunschkonzert für die Wehrmacht (musical request programme for the Wehrmacht). In 1940 she recorded the very popular song La Paloma, heard throughout Germany.

    Her voice style was mainly operatic coloratura soprano with a deep, fast vibrato. She added frequent embellishments such as soaring arpeggiation and melisma. Some songs were recorded with a few words whispered or spoken, and she occasionally emphasized words with a gritty, growling jazz style reminiscent of African-American blues singer Ethel Waters. She was a pitch-perfect whistler in the manner of Bing Crosby.The songs she recorded in German and Spanish varied from folk to pop, including flamenco, rumba, tango and mambo.

    In 1943 while on tour in Sweden, Serrano was accused by Germany of being a spy—she had donated a benefit performance to Jewish refugees. Rather than returning to Germany to be arrested, she traveled to Chile. Her songs were subsequently banned in Nazi Germany. Serrano attempted a tour in the United States, but her German repertoire was not popular. She appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1950, but little came of the publicity. In 1951, she went to West Germany to take part in the film Schwarze Augen (Dark Eyes), in which she played a Cuban singer, and the next year she sang in the film Saison in Salzburg. Beyond these appearances, she saw little success in Germany, ending with a poorly received tour with Kurt Hohenberger in 1957.

    In her native Chile, where she spent the last years of her life, the public never forgave her for performing in Nazi Germany. She died in poverty in Santiago on 6 April 1997.

    I hope you enjoy this as much as I have.

    Best wishes,
    Stu

    1:43

    This video provides the lyrics to the famous hymnal, Amazing Grace, translated into the Cherokee language.

    I wanted to post a version in which the lyrics with the meaning of the words were available.

    I had also chosen audio taken from the Cherokee National Holiday - Gospel Music CD because of its clarity in pronunciation. I had received a copy of the lyrics along with translation of the lyrics from the book Cherokee Hymns History. As always, I think it is important to understand the translation as well as hearing the words.

  • More than life by Jana

    7:51










    More Than Life (2001) - Reached the Top 10 on Billboard's Artists to Watch chart and peaked in Billboard Magazines Hot Shot Debut At #29. Remixes where made by DJ Skribble and Anthony Acid. (Curb Records)

    What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the winter time. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.
    -Crowfoot (Blackfoot warrior and orator)

    Native American by birth and heritage, contemporary artist through hard work, destiny and the spirits, Jana brings a fresh outlook and exotic style to todays music. Jana refers to her cultural anomaly as Urban Indian. Her striking looks, and powerful voice coupled with the sensibilities of pop, R&B, world and gospel music create a compelling new mix that seduces your ear and overwhelms your senses.

    Janas first single, Ooh, Baby, Baby, was an immediate success on radio and in the R&R, DMA, Hitmakers, and Gavin charts. Billboard magazine named Ooh, Baby, Baby pop single of the week. More Than Life was her next single. Remixed by legendary MTV DJ Skribble and Anthony Acid, the record became one of the biggest dance records of the year. Janas next release was a controversial remake of Led Zeppelins Stairway to Heaven that was one of the years best selling dance records.

    Janas debut album entitled, Flash of a Firefly, was released to critical acclaim and commercial success. The CD features material written by Jana about her unique perspective on life. It is at once a deeply personal, yet universal work that embraces and engages while transcending the musical boundaries.

    Immediately after finishing her first album, Jana recorded American Indian Christmas. On this record Jana sings ten traditional Christmas songs in ten different American Indian languages accompanied by a full orchestra and traditional American Indian instruments. It is an album of inspirational beauty.

    For each of her last three singles and first two albums, Jana has won the prestigious Native American Music Award. She has received 6 NAMMY awards for Best Pop Performer, Song of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Producer for the production of American Indian Christmas, and Best Pop Recording for American Indian Story.

    Janas newest CD is entitled American Indian Story. It is an epic adventure telling the powerful story of the young girl, ShaKona and her tribes journey to the New World. American Indian Story was nominated for a GRAMMY Award in 2007. It is Janas most ambitious work to date and represents another dimension to her talent.

    Much of Janas material has been heard by the thousands who have attended Janas sold out headline concerts across the country in the past year. Her rigorous touring schedule has already brought her to forty eight of the fifty states as well as Europe.

    Another important part of Jana's life is her own Jana's Kids organization, founded by her to help Native American youth achieve the successes they dream of. Jana's Kids has become one of the most successful programs of its kind in America.

    Adding to her career portfolio, Jana just completed filming her first movie. She has the starring role in the Fossil Ridge Films production of Raptor Ranch, slated for release the end of this year.

    Janas Native American ancestry is reflected in her exotic presence. A member of the Lumbee tribe, she honors her Native traditions in her everyday life. Jana states that being an Urban Indian is to walk in two worlds but not compromise my cultural identity. I cannot ignore who I am and where I came from. I am proud that I can maintain my traditional customs while living in todays world. Jana integrates much of her heritage into her musical persona and her unique sense of style. Her flair for fashion has been featured in numerous publications including In Style, Glamour, Marie Claire, and The New York Times.

    Drawing from diverse musical influences to create a fresh perspective on pop music today, Jana reveals her personal style through her extraordinary musical talents. She is not representative of any one world, just as her music is a collage of multi-cultural influences. Instead, Jana embodies a synthesis of the modern world and her own ethnic background. Jana is a voice you must hear. You wont be disappointed.

    She walks in beauty in two worlds.

  • Jana Mashonee Solid Ground from album New Moon Born

    3:37









    With her new album, New Moon Born, poised to burst onto the mainstream music scene, its no wonder Jana Mashonee is all smiles these days. The album represents a significant departure from her previous endeavors, taking on a decidedly more upbeat rhythm and blues flavor. The album is about rebirth and new beginnings; it reflects a phase in my life that has taken on a different shape and direction from anything Ive done before, she says. This music conveys my personal truths and beliefs. In addition to providing all the vocals and piano, Jana wrote and co-produced the album.

    Janas new featured track is an emotional cover of Sam Cookes soul classic, A Change Is Gonna Come, with Juno Award winning guitarist Derek Miller. Jana debuted the song and the powerful music video at her live performance for the 2009 American Indian Presidential Inaugural Ball.

    Since the 2006 release of her GRAMMY-nominated concept album, American Indian Story, the Lumbee Indian singer-songwriter has not had a moments rest. Amidst her demanding touring schedule which has taken her to 48 states as well as Europe and Canada, she found time in 2007 to shoot a video for American Indian Storys first single, The Enlightened Time. Met with critical acclaim and enthusiastic fan response, the video has won numerous film festival awards, as well as a NAMMY for Best Short Form Music Video, Janas seventh Native American Music Award.

    Jana also recorded American Indian Christmas, a unique album of ten traditional Christmas carols, each sung in a different Native American tongue. Recorded with a full orchestra and traditional Native American instruments, this holiday album continues to receive rave reviews from press and fans alike.

    At the start of the new millennium, Jana found success with chart-topping club hits like More Than Life and her cover of Led Zeppelins epic, Stairway to Heaven, earning her the honor of being the first Native American female to land on the Billboard dance charts. Her powerful voice, uplifting message, and exotic beauty and style garnered widespread press attention.

    Despite her fast-paced career, Jana has still found time to give back by establishing her non-profit organization, Janas Kids, in 2002. Through the foundation, she helps Native American youth achieve their dreams. Starting in 2007, Janas Kids began awarding the David L. Boyle Family Scholarship to Native students. I hope to raise more money so that I can fund a full two to four years of schooling for each person receiving a scholarship. Thats my current goal.

    This is indeed an exciting time for Jana with New Moon Born set to take her career to new heights. Despite this, she is decidedly peaceful. Find the inspiration within yourself first and then you can help others, she says. I believe everyone has the responsibility in their lives to influence other people positively. Jana Mashonee is truly the embodiment of the ancient Lumbee proverb: She walks in beauty in two worlds.

  • Jana Mashonee NEW Album:NewMoonBorn Song:Solid Ground

    3:12




    With her new album, New Moon Born, poised to burst onto the mainstream music scene, its no wonder Jana Mashonee is all smiles these days. The album represents a significant departure from her previous endeavors, taking on a decidedly more upbeat rhythm and blues flavor. The album is about rebirth and new beginnings; it reflects a phase in my life that has taken on a different shape and direction from anything Ive done before, she says. This music conveys my personal truths and beliefs. In addition to providing all the vocals and piano, Jana wrote and co-produced the album.

    Janas new featured track is an emotional cover of Sam Cookes soul classic, A Change Is Gonna Come, with Juno Award winning guitarist Derek Miller. Jana debuted the song and the powerful music video at her live performance for the 2009 American Indian Presidential Inaugural Ball.

    Since the 2006 release of her GRAMMY-nominated concept album, American Indian Story, the Lumbee Indian singer-songwriter has not had a moments rest. Amidst her demanding touring schedule which has taken her to 48 states as well as Europe and Canada, she found time in 2007 to shoot a video for American Indian Storys first single, The Enlightened Time. Met with critical acclaim and enthusiastic fan response, the video has won numerous film festival awards, as well as a NAMMY for Best Short Form Music Video, Janas seventh Native American Music Award.

    Jana also recorded American Indian Christmas, a unique album of ten traditional Christmas carols, each sung in a different Native American tongue. Recorded with a full orchestra and traditional Native American instruments, this holiday album continues to receive rave reviews from press and fans alike.

    At the start of the new millennium, Jana found success with chart-topping club hits like More Than Life and her cover of Led Zeppelins epic, Stairway to Heaven, earning her the honor of being the first Native American female to land on the Billboard dance charts. Her powerful voice, uplifting message, and exotic beauty and style garnered widespread press attention.

    Despite her fast-paced career, Jana has still found time to give back by establishing her non-profit organization, Janas Kids, in 2002. Through the foundation, she helps Native American youth achieve their dreams. Starting in 2007, Janas Kids began awarding the David L. Boyle Family Scholarship to Native students. I hope to raise more money so that I can fund a full two to four years of schooling for each person receiving a scholarship. Thats my current goal.

    This is indeed an exciting time for Jana with New Moon Born set to take her career to new heights. Despite this, she is decidedly peaceful. Find the inspiration within yourself first and then you can help others, she says. I believe everyone has the responsibility in their lives to influence other people positively. Jana Mashonee is truly the embodiment of the ancient Lumbee proverb: She walks in beauty in two worlds.

    Title: Solid Ground

    Im never gonna hurt you
    Lose faith and then desert you
    Ill never ever leave you alone

    When you quit chasing rainbows
    Stop caring where the train goes
    Ill be right there to bring you back home

    And I will save you
    From all that haunts you

    I will be
    Your solid ground
    The safe harbor you never found
    I will be
    Your heart reborn
    The shelter in your endless storm

    It seems like such a long while
    Since I have seen your sweet smile
    Now even when youre here you seem gone

    When life comes crashing at you
    You have someone to catch you
    To hold you till you stand on your own

    Yes I will save you
    From all that haunts you

    I will be
    Your solid ground
    The safe harbor you never found
    I will be
    Your heart reborn
    The shelter in your endless storm

    Ive watched you stumble
    Breakdown and crumble
    What more can I say

    Ill be beside you
    Heal whats inside you
    Dont turn me away

  • HEARTBEAT, WARBLE, AND THE ELECTRIC POWWOW: AMERICAN INDIAN MUSIC by Craig Harris

    11:52

    HEARTBEAT, WARBLE, AND THE ELECTRIC POWWOW: AMERICAN INDIAN MUSIC (University of Oklahoma Press, May 2016) celebrates in depth the vibrant soundscape of Indigenous North America from the “heartbeat” of intertribal drums and “warble” of Native flutes to contemporary rock, hip-hop, and electronic music. Drawing on more than one hundred interviews with musicians, producers, ethnographers, and record-label owners, author, photographer, and musician Craig Harris conjures an aural tapestry in which powwow drums and end-blown woodwinds resound alongside operatic and symphonic strains, jazz and reggae, country music, and blues. Harris begins with an exploration of the powwow from sacred ceremonies to intertribal gatherings. He examines the traditions of the Native American flute and its revival with artists such as R. Carlos Nakai, Robert Mirabal, and two-time Grammy winners Mary Youngblood and Bill Miller. Singers and songwriters including Buffy Sainte-Marie, Keith Secola, and Joanne Shenandoah provide insight into their music and their lives as American Indians. Harris also traces American Indian rock, reggae, punk, and pop over four decades, punctuating his survey with exclusive commentary from such artists as Tom Bee, founder of Native America’s first rock band, XIT. Grammy-winner Taj Mahal recalls influential guitarist Jesse Ed Davis; ex-bandmates reflect on Rock Hall of Fame inductee Redbone; Robbie Robertson, Pura Fe, and Rita Coolidge describe how their groundbreaking 1993 album, Music for the Native Americans, evolved; and A Tribe Called Red discuss their melding of archival powwow recordings into fiery dance music. The many voices and sounds that weave throughout Harris’s engaging, accessible account portray a sonic landscape that defies stereotyping and continues to expand. HEARTBEAT, WARBLE, AND THE ELECTRIC POWWOW: AMERICAN INDIAN MUSIC is the story—told by those who live it—of resisting a half-millennium of cultural suppression to create new sounds while preserving old roots.

    Over the years I've written songs about Native American heroes. Geronimo...great leader of the
    Chiricahua Apache...once said: I was born on the prairies where the wind blew free and there was nothing to break the light and there were no enclosures. This song is about him...riding through the desert...during his long resistance to those who would try to enclose him and his People.
