    Well, I am 100% Blackfoot/Blackfeet and I come from a very proud nation. I know you don't have to be CREE to be a so called "awesome" round dance singer. My grandfather taught many, many, many, many cree lead singers how to sing. He was a very culturally strong person and he made sure we knew our culture very well. Yes, some CREE singers sing okay, but lets all stand up and bow to Black Lodge!!!!!!! Way to go on the grammy nominations Alg!!!! Remember boys, winning isn't everything, it's the ride there that counts!!!!.....One last question......HOW MANY CREE DRUMS WERE NOMINATED FOR GRAMMYS? :Angel2

    Kewl question! I LOVE good round dance songs!! Right now

    I'm HOOKED on Red Bull's 1998 c.d - Schemitzun hand drum

    champions. Dang EVERY song is out of this world... They still

    make my feet dance even though I've heard it about 300 times.

    Wow.

    And yes, for non-Crees Black Lodge has the closest sound.

    But nothing can beat being there in person.

    started a topic round dance singing

    round dance singing

    the topic of Cree style round dance singing has come up
    so i gonna ask you all who is your favorite round dance group or singers? Personally here in the alberta/sask area, where the round dance has originated from there are many many singers and groups that can jus put a smile on your face with the singing that they do. In these areas i guess we are a little spoiled with the amount of round dances that go on in this area. On any given weekend throughout the winter there will be 3-4 different round dances with 20-25 lead singers a night. A few of my favorites are, Gordon Mcgilvery, Arnold Pete, Irvin Waskewitch, Art Moosomin, Clayton Chief, Delia Waskewitch, and some of the groups out there are Northern Cree, Little Island Cree, Mosquito Singers, Whitefish Jrs. all of these groups can jam! Whos the best non-Cree group out there that can jam these tunes.....Blacklodge comes the closest.....also i have noticed that this type of singing has spread out from here to other parts of the country and the US. So other ppls might be aware of some great round dance singers that i am not........
