With his deeply resonant voice, Lawrence Laughing (Mohawk) turns his music into heartfelt prayers that honor all of human life.
"Now Our Minds Are One is one of the most soulful traditional recordings today." -Joanne Shenandoah
In the Mohawk language, the title of this recording is 'Onen enska ne-io-kwa-ni-kon-ra' and is a traditional phrase used to acknowledge a prayer. Accompanied by a unique collection of ethnic acoustic instruments (Native flute, bowed zither, guitars, cittern, oud, bass, hoop drum, resonating stones and more), Laughing expresses compassion for our struggles, respect for courage, and gratitude for love.
AWARD WINNING ARTIST - Lawrence Laughing was first heard with Joanne Shenandoah on the 1999 Native American Music Award winning release "Orenda - Native American Songs of Life."
