Healing songs are a newer style of soothing harmonized chanting from the Native American Church (or Peyote Church) without the accompaniment of the peyote water-drum or rattle and are meant to facilitate meditation and prayer and provide comfort and peace for the singers and listeners. This recording combines the inspiring sound of healing chants sung by Verdell Primeaux and Johnny Mike with a backdrop of ambient electronic textures and sweeping atmospherics. The result is a innovative and reverent presentation of chants from the time-honored Native American Church tradition.
