    I'd like to profer an American Indian chant to perhaps help clear all the bad feeling from the forum...courtesy of youtube....:wink:

    Ok Mem, I found the origins of the chant from 'Paid in Full' for your pleasure....it's by an Israeli singer called Ofra Haza....here's the link....

    Yes, I remember a really good remix of the song that became popular at dance clubs.

    I just found this. I remember this song, but I didn't know that she sang on it.

    That was sweet, thanks Mem.

    I think you might really like this singer if you haven't already heard of her...

    Her music is mystical and beautiful...it's make me feel like I am back in Arabia...

    It is beautiful. Thank you for sharing that.

    There was a chant (and no, I can't remember the artist) created to the story of "Skeleton Woman". You wouldn't happen to know that one, would you?

    Hi MB, well I had a look about and I couldn't find anything...but I think it was an Inuit chant? I found this inuit chant which is beautiful indeed....ignore the first 15 seconds...just seems to be distorted, then it kicks off....

    Please let me know about this 'Skeleton Woman'....was it filmed, or played in a theatre or playhouse?

    Here's the link...

    "Skeleton Woman" is an old Inuit tale about a fisherman who finds the catch of a lifetime. It's one of my favourites and an beautiful description of the life/death/life cycle.

    I enjoyed that MB. Quite scary and haunting....but a fine end, and a fireside tale to be sure.

    That first part? It's not distortion. It's a recording of two women "wind witching." They show illustrations of it in the beginning. Basically it's two women kissing open mouth and then breathing through each other. It makes that sound you hear in the opening. Why they do this I don't remember but I do recall seeing it once in boarding school in a documentary movie about the Inuit.
