This is one of the most beautiful and unique Christmas CDs I've ever heard. Jana, with the voice of an angel, sings 10 Christmas songs in 10 different Native American languages backed by a full orchestra and native instruments. Her version of O' Holy Night sung in Navajo is worth the CD itself. For a sample of her songs, check out her site at jananation.com.

My first time hearing of Jana and this Christmas CD was on Friday, Dec 23. I was driving as she was being interviewed on the radio. When they started playing samples from this CD, I almost had to pull over. Her voice is TRULY AMAZING and the arrangements are very traditionally and beautifully done. This a must have for anyone who loves Christmas music.

Just amazing. Her voice is incredible. The songs are so familiar to everyone that not knowing the language doesn't matter. Stand out sonsg for me... "What Child is this" and "Oh Holy Night"

I first learned of ths CD from another, more expensive source, and decided that I wanted to get it. I don't know why Amazon doesn't have sound samples but if you get the CD you'll find that Jana has a beautiful voice.

10 different American Indian languages for the 10 songs, the instrumental part is modern non-Indian and the songs themselves have been adapted very well. I suspect that the rhythm isn't traditional for each language but the effect works so well few will mind, played in the background a casual listener might not even notice they aren't in English.

Everything is good but I think I liked #4 "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" (Lakota) and #10 "Amazing Grace" (Lumbee) perhaps the best.

I'd like to have English/Indian lyrics for the songs, you don't get that, but find no fault with this CD otherwise.

Buy it for Christmas and get someone else a copy, you won't regret it.

Jana has a pure, clear, beautiful voice. Hearing the familiar Christmas songs in different languages gives the beautiful old songs a new and appealing sound. Silent Night and Amazing Grace are especially beautiful.

I LOVE this CD! We play it at home every year. I just LOVE the drums in the background. The beat is awesome! My favorite is Drummer Boy. I like the Navaho-sounding drum beat. Her voice is so full, beautiful, and hep. lol lol I also purchased this for my sister since she tends to celebrate our part American-Indian heritage.

I was very pleased with the CD, the music was lovely, familiar Christmas songs sang in the words of the different tribes of Native Americans. Made me really listen to the words and songs that I know so well I usually take them for granted and it was so lovely and calming. Jana has a beautiful voice, very pleasant and relaxing. I have always been interested in the Native Americans, reading and visiting the Museum in Washington, DC, but never had music by them before and I am very glad I purchased this CD and will probably consider buying more in the future. Thank you for helping make my Christmas enjoyable with your lovely version of the Christmas music. Pat Reiber, Reading, PA
