“Celebrate National Women’s History Month- Walmart inks distribution deal with Joanne Shenandoah for new album”

“Celebrate National Women’s History Month-  Walmart inks distribution deal with Joanne Shenandoah for new album”

ONEIDA, New York- March 6, 2012- Just in time to celebrate National Women’s History Month, Walmart and internationally recognized Native American musician, humanitarian and scholar, Joanne Shenandoah, reached an agreement for distribution of her new album, “Lifegivers.”  Arriving in strategically chosen stores, the CD hits the shelves today. Walmart stores across 12 states in the USA will carry Shenandoah’s latest album which serves as a tribute to women.

“Walmart clearly sees the potential in Native American music and has opened their hearts to this art form.  When people have a chance to hear the music, they love it!  My music is consistent with Walmarts’ commitment to enhancing lives and protecting Mother Earth for future generations,” explained Joanne Shenandoah about this distribution agreement.

Shifting from plastic CD containers to recycled paper was one of Shenandoah’s more environmentally conscious moves in developing the packaging for her latest work, Lifegivers.  Known for her strongly held belief in living a more sustainable and respectful life for the welfare of the planet and future generations, Joanne Shenandoah redesigned the typical CD packaging to be recycle-friendly.

Walmart is shipping the new album in advance of Mother’s Day which fits with the theme of Shenandoah’s newest music collection. Additionally, the album is released in March which celebrates and honors National Women’s History Month.

“Lifegivers is a tribute to the life cycles of women from the first beating of the heart to when her spirit leaves to walk across the stars along the Milky Way as she returns home to the Skyworld where she will be welcomed by her loved ones. Each song is meant to bring the listener to a place of celebration for every cycle of life. As I asked for these melodies to flow, I realized I was inspired by different aspects of rhythm and music from different cultures of the planet. It has been my great honor to be able to be embraced by many life-givers of the world; newborns, young women, pregnant women, women in love, women who sing, women who teach, and women of wisdom,” explains Ms. Shenandoah.

Joanne Shenandoah, Ph.D., is one of America’s most celebrated and critically acclaimed musicians being a Grammy Award winner and having earned over 40 music awards.  She has performed all over the world, including North and South America, South Africa, Europe, Australia and Korea, and most recently in Bethlehem, Palestine through her work with Project Peace on Earth.

Shenandoah has performed at the White House, Carnegie Hall, 3 Presidential Inaugurations, Madison Square Garden, Crystal Bridges Museum, The NMAI-Smithsonian, The Ordway Theater, Hummingbird Centre, Toronto Skydome, The Parliament of the Worlds’ Religions, and Woodstock ‘94.

Ms. Shenandoah has given hundreds of lectures, commencement speeches, and workshops throughout the world. Ms. Shenandoah also appeared in “The Last Winter” which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival with a 5 star review.  She has been featured in numerous film, video and television documentaries as either an actress or narrator and composed music for these venues as well.

“Having the opportunity to sing for people all over the world has been such an honor. I am so very pleased that Walmart will be aiding me in getting this latest music out to so many locations across the USA. I truly hope and pray that the music will serve as a reminder as to the true worth of women and be a blessing to the listeners,” stated Joanne Shenandoah.

Joanne Shenandoah says she’s thrilled to be singing important songs from her newest album at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Westcott Community Center, 826 Euclid Ave., Syracuse.

Yes, she’ll love to be there, says the member of the Iroquois Confederacy’s Wolf Clan. “

‘Lifegivers’ for Valentine’s Day,” she says.

That’s the title of her album that is inspired by music from different cultures, a tribute to the life cycles of women all over the world.

She’ll be joined on stage by her sister, Diane, and her daughter, Leah. The Grammy Award winner who lives in Oneida Castle will have important stories to work in with her music.

The day before Christmas and on Christmas Day, Shenandoah performed in Palestine as part of Project Peace on Earth, which put on a series of world sacred music concerts.

“It was the first one in Manger Square,” she says. “It was fantastic. Awesome. Eye-opening. What I liked best was to realize we have such a great gift of freedom in this country, to go where we want to go, say what we want to say, sing what we want to sing,” Shenandoah says.

“I met so many people thirsty for messages of peace.” Shenandoah says she’ll never forget the couple she met who told her how they risked a big fine to take the trip from Israel to Jerusalem to hear her sing at a performing arts center.

“Knowing that one of the prophets of peace had been there before us, to visit the birthplace of Jesus Christ, it was a real blessing,” Shenandoah says.

Shenandoah says she’ll also talk about people she’s met while working with Syracuse University’s Hiawatha Institute.

“We are moving forward and very excited about our effort to bringing knowledge of indigenous people to the world,” she says.

Tickets for the Folkus Project show are $15 for the general public, $12 for members of the Westcott Community Center.
