Creator has been good to us this year and has blessed us with a new CD titled, "Grandmother Earth, Grandfather Sky" produced by Larry Mitchell.
Our "Grandmother Earth, Grandfather Sky" CD was possible to create & produce through the funding from First Nations Composer Initiative (FNCI). In August we traveled to Minnesota to meet and have a concert at the Indian Center in Minneapolis. We met a fantastic crew of Natives who keep the wheel going so that countless artists can have their music produced and promoted. We are forever grateful to FNCI! Thank you!
This CD is particularly special in that it speaks and sings to my traditional grandmother and grandfather and the influences of growing up on the Navajo Nation. My grandfather Samuel Dalton passed into the Spirit World in 1996 and my grandmother Margaret Dalton continues to do her walk and live her traditional life on Black Mesa to the best or her ability - with help from relatives. In essence, my grandmother is of Grandmother Earth and my grandfather is of Grandfather Sky in the Spirit World, thus the title of the CD is dedicated to them.
