BUFFALO TALES is Bunny's second CD release that takes you from the fast, vibrating Two Worlds Clash to slower times and restful places past remembered by the Lilac Bush and the Apple Tree. This magnificent CD underscores hope for the future after times of uncertainty - true peace for all our relations ... Mitakuye Oyasin!
BUFFALO TALES is about bringing ancient perspectives forward in time. The CD features some wonderful original songs like More Than A Mountain (about Crazy Horse Memorial), Dance! Buffalo Dance! (about white buffalo "Rainbow Spirit"), and Vision Quest.
This CD tells a story from the beginning to the end - songs about truth, seasons, relationships, love, open spaces, and slower times. To listen closely to Bunny's own Lakota-inflective Folk genre you may hear the sound of a soaring heart, a growing tree, or the wind dancing around it.
"O Great Spirit" an ancient Lakota prayer put to music circles the end of this album full of earth honoring sounds punctuated by Lakota "love" flute made by an elder still living on the Pine Ridge reservation.
Here are the sounds of Mother Earth to bring you back to nature and the HEART of the Black Hills where Bunny lives as the wide open sage covered prairies still live with buffalo, and in song she creates a place you will want to return again and again in music that resonates from this sacred land.
A truly original sound - Buffalo Tales showcases Bunny's beautifully recognizable voice and acoustic live performance style.
To the indiginous Lakota (Sioux)the buffalo represented abundant peace and harmony in all aspects of life - their whole world. Yet their dreams and prophecys foretold a time of world trouble would come before true "buffalo" abundance would again cover the earth.
"Each song is a pearl"- Willy Priem-Belgium
"...melodies alternately lilt and soar. Her lyrics sometimes joyfully, sometimes poignantly, but always vividly, call to mind the Black Hills she loves."
Audiences young and old are mesmerized with Bunny's relaxed and artful use of Native American flute and Lakota drum to punctuate her unique and sensitive acoustic guitar accompaniment.
On the CD insert, complete with photos and stories of each song that relays Bunny's love of the land and deep appreciation for the connectedness of all things,
"I pray that the spirit of the white Buffalo will soon abound to bless the red, black, white and yellow (all) peoples of the earth, in a time of abundant peace for ALL living things...and it is sure to come."
Bunny's songwriting skills and hauntingly beautiful sound focus on the intricate beauty of word pictures, full of emotion, and straight-from-the-heart. The thoughts and feelings they inspire linger long after the music stops.
Original song titles include:
"More Than a Mountain"
(a song inspired by a visit to Crazy Horse Memorial),
