May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,
May hope forever wipe away your tears.
And, above all,
may the silence make you strong!
Ly-O-Lay Ale Loya (Circle Dance) conveys the stories, legends and plight of the Native Americans by combining sampled chants of the Navajo, Pueblo, Sioux tribes and Sami people yoik with synthesizer backings, all driven forth by a combination of traditional drumming and electronic dance-beats.
Ly-O-Lay Ale Loya (Circle Dance) is part of the album "Yeha-Noha" (Wishes of happiness and prosperity) released in 1994 by a musical project named "Sacred Spirit".
On the first album, the song "Circle Dance" was presented as a native American chant, however the main vocals are an authentic Sami yoik ("Normo Jovnna" by Terje Tretnes).
For each album sold,
donations are made to the Native American Rights Fund, a non-profit
Native American organization devoted to restoring the legal rights
of the native American people.
