Product Description

Christmas comes to Navajoland as the Todi Neesh Zhee Singers present five Christmas songs done in traditional song and dance style interspersed with four social dance songs. These popular singers are joined by Roger Begay in a traditional style Christmas song and singers Radmilla Cody, Socie Saltwater and Consuela Chacon in Christmas standards sung in both Navajo and English.

Review

Here is something very unique and cool for the holiday season. On Navajo Christmas, the Todi Neesh Zhee Singers & Friends do something I had never previously experienced. They interpret classic Christmas chestnuts such as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer as traditional Navajo song-and-dance pieces, and the result is mesmerizing. The TNZ Singers also present four social dance songs, and the final four cuts provide more familiar singing on well-loved holiday pieces with lyrics sometimes in English, sometimes in Navajo.

For those who enjoy Gregorian chants, this music is fascinating; the sing-song Navajo chanting floats over a constant drum beat, and the chanters/singers proceed in unison. The ambiance is both relaxing and stirring. On these pieces, the artists occasionally break out in English, singing/chanting, 'You better watch out, you better not cry, Santa Claus is coming to town!', and the effect is rather startling. On Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, soloist Roger Begay gives richly-textured 'song', chanting at brighter, higher tones. On Joy to the World, Radmilla Cody delivers an intensely lovely a cappella rendition, accompanied only by maracas, for the most part. I especially enjoyed Consuela Chacon's excellent a cappella Silent Night, done in English with a slightly jazzy edge. Very sweet.

Sick of the same old shopping mall music? Interested in exploring the roots of Americana? The Todi Neesh Zhee Singers (& Friends) will sweep you away to Navajoland for the holidays. Should be much warmer than Minnesota, and the entertainment will keep you well satisfied through the season.

Some of the songs were quite repetitive, but then we were pleasantly surprised by the inclusion of other songs that did not follow traditional percussion beats at the end of the CD. My suggestion is to make your own mix so as to break up the monotony of the drum and chant songs as they can get old after a four or five in a row.
