Old-Time Round Dance Songs of Oklahoma

 

For the first time ever, this recording brings together the traditional Round Dance songs of Oklahoma in a  single collection.  The songs heard on this recording belong to the traditional group of Round Dance songs that the Kiowa people received through their alliance and friendship with the people of Taos Pueblo.  Many of the songs in this collection have not been shared outside of Oklahoma. They have been presented here with the encouragement of elder singers in order that they may be shared with future generations. Sung by some of the greatest young voices of the  southern Plains, these beautiful songs have stood the test of time and are destined to live on for generations to come.

 

Old-Time Round Dance Songs of Oklahoma SS (CD) $19.95 + s/h

The songs on this recording come from the unique friendship between the people of the Taos Pueblo and the Kiowa.  These songs were received by the Taos people and then shared with the Kiowa.  Drawing upon their strong singing traditions, the Kiowa made them their own and they gradually came to be shared throughout Oklahoma.
 

Many of these songs have only been shared within Oklahoma gatherings and have not been heard by many people.  With the encouragement and blessings of many elder singers in Oklahoma, this group of singers decided to share these recordings with the public in order to share their beauty and ensure that these songs endure.
