Spirit Wind Women’s Hand Drum
The name Spirit Wind represents the importance of giving thanks for our
breath. Multi-talented artists, singers, song-writers and dancers Nancy
Johnson, Michele Perpaul, Tania Cordoba, Rochelle Allan,Amy Desjarlais
and Dawnis Kennedy come together to share Native traditional and social
hand-drum songs through stories, drum, voice and shakers.
This style of singing brings women from all over Turtle Island together
and offers them an opportunity to practice and live Native spirituality
in traditional as well as non-traditional settings. Women’s hand
drum social singing is a relatively new tradition, however the drum itself
has been acknowledged as the heartbeat of Mother Earth since time immemorial.
The drumbeat reminds of our relationship and connection to Creation.
We acknowledge the support of
the Canada Council for the Arts which last year invested $27.4 million
in music throughout Canada.
Nous remercions de son soutien le
Conseil des Arts du Canada, qui a investi 27,4 millions de dollars
l'an dernier dans la musique à travers le Canada.
