Phoenix (Arizona), USA – With their release of Intonation (Canyon
Records), Alex E. Smith (Pawnee/Sauk & Fox) and Cheevers Toppah (Kiowa/Navajo)
forge a new and-innovative style of singing that blends southern plains singing
and choral hymnody. Their soulful sound, a fusion of Native American Church
music and southern style pow-wow, is infused with ethereal harmonies little
heard in Native American music. With this album, Smith and Toppah have entered
new musical territory.
