A wonderful collection of Native American music, Sacred Souls should satisfy anyone with a taste for this sort of music. Everything here is fairly calm and sedate, most songs incorporating only a few instruments and those instruments are played in a generally sedate manner. This cohesive sense of peacefulness really works this album's benefit, since it not only functions as a sampler of Native American music but also as a relaxing listen. Only three of these 15 songs are standards -- "Amazing Grace," "Mountain Spirit Dance," "Hualapai Bird Song" -- so expect an authentic sample of Native American music.
